As you know, GNOME 3 will be coming out *very* soon and soon after that,
we will be providing GNOME3 with 11.4. We will even be shipping LiveCDs
to GNOME Foundation with GNOME3 built in.
GNOME Foundation is doing a lot of work to organize the launch of
GNOME3. But like any other project, there's never quite enough launch
parties. We also have our own launch parties (yes some will continue on
in the next months ahead even if March 10 was our launch date.)
I think it will develop strong goodwill between projects if we can
either plan co-launch parties with GNOME Foundation or, in regions where
there is no one to have GNOME3 launch parties, consider offering a 11.4
launch party and invite GNOME3 to join in on the launch party. Or, if a
GNOME Ambassador is not in your area, consider doing it yourself. I am
certain that the GNOME Foundation will appreciate and remember the
support that openSUSE has given to raising visibility. GNOME is one of
several important desktops that openSUSE provides and we should show our
appreciation for the hard work that upstream projects do that help make
our own Project even better.
Both GNOME and openSUSE are equally generating good noise out there
right now. Combined, we can take that noise to a higher level.
Along this same vein, I mention GNOME3 because it is just around the
corner. But in fact, we should definitely look for other opportunities
to co-launch with other projects whose software we use to make openSUSE
as awesome as it is today. Any other interesting launches coming up
that we should think about?
