Dear all, let's please calm down a bit
That's a fine suggestion, Evzenie. (The good thing is that at SUSE
and openSUSE we are a bunch of people who care very much; the downside
is, well, we care very much. ;-)
I'm the escalation point, and you could contact
me at any moment.
That appears to be part of my (new) job description as well; a
common aspect in our different roles.
Not sure, if it has been properly communicated
outside, but SUSE is
right now in the end of IT separation with Microfocus, the previous
owner. At the very last moment, the timeline for the identity management
has been cut for 6 weeks out of 12 - you can imagine, which unbelievable
workload it brings to us
Yikes, even I as a SUSE employee was not aware of that! That definitely
sounds very tough. Kudos and good luck to Daniel, you, and the team!
At this situation, we are trying to avoid gaps and
- but not always succeed. So we are asking for help and support
Neal reached out to me, and earlier today (well, yesterday by now),
he, Stasiek, and me had a good call where I learned a bit about the
situation from their perspective/openSUSE.
They agreed to summarize the current state, goal state, and requirements
from their perspective which I expect will be a good base to sync between
them/the openSUSE heroes and your team and whoever is engaging around the
transition on the SUSE side.
So please let me understand, if we can proceed with a
proposed you and Bernhard is working on now - under the condition, that
we will sit together in the end of May to develop a permanent solution
and avoid a technical debt. We would very much appreciate community's
hands both for the workaround and for the final solution.
I sensed a lot of engagement and willingness to help from Neal and
Stasiek (and would not be surprised for there to be others). Personally
I am not an expert and so cannot advise whether the workaround you mention
is going to work, and hope their summary will help with that conversation.
Please help us now. I give you my word, I'll
raise it up to the top
management level and do all I can to find resources to drive it. If
we could meet (I mean call for now) and you could explain or write
me what exactly is the matter - it would be great and helped me a lot,
unfortunately I've missed part of the discussion
Great minds think alike? (I ended up stepping away from my notebook
after my meeting with the two before sending an update, but it seems
you and me were thinking along the same lines. <g>)
I'll do my best to join a Hero on Tue monthly
meeting in irc and will be
happy to know you better.
In any case, here is my contact info below, and I'm at your service.
That's a great offer, thank you!
How about if you and me briefly sync tomorrow (Thursday), then we wait
for the summary, and then take it from there?
