There was a recent post on reddit
that made us take a look at how to present our lifecycle page
(https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime) and info to be added to the marketing
of Leap 15.3.
There were several comments on reddit that can be summarized as there is
a lack of clear information on how long the lifecycle of Leap 15.x will
be going forward. When the info on https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime was
originally written, there was some clarity on major versions lasting a
minimum of 36 months. We know Leap 42 and 15 exceeded that lifecycle. It
looks like we're at a point where we evolved and need to provide a bit
more clarity for people based on the reddit comments
I propose we change the lifecycle page to include the following
sentences and include the info in the marketing of Leap 15.3 and beyond
(for the foreseeable future):
Leap *Major Release* (15.x) extends maintenance and support until a
At present, a successor has not been declared; Leap 15's lifecycle fully
aligns with SUSE Linux Enterprise.
There is a projection as of March 2021 that Leap 15 will extend to Leap
Both major versions of Leap 42 and 15 were supported more than 36 months.
Any thoughts, changes, removals or additions to the above sentences.
Our monthly Thursday sprint is scheduled for August 5 at 18:30 UTC. If
you plan on attending, let me know. Otherwise I will cancel this months
meeting since I'll be on holiday. I will only attend the meeting if I
know people will attend. I recommend we move the meeting location to
https://meet.opensuse.org/meeting if w do have a meeting.
Hi there, geekos,
It's been a while.
I used to be a part of the openSUSE marketing team some 7 or 8 years ago, mostly writing about the project for the openSUSE news, and yes, also the Commandline Tuesdays https://en.opensuse.org/Command_Line_Tuesdays series. I was known as holden87 back then. Many years have passed, and nowadays I am a father, and professionally doing SEO in a digital agency after a longer stint in tourism marketing.
I am also learning how to code, just sent out my first Hello world a couple of days ago :)
I returned to Linux a couple of months ago, as I was finally in a state where all my tools were working on it. And yes, my only true love, the geeko :)
Aynway, if there's anyone doing any marketing-related work and you need a hand, count me in.
What I can do:
- offer a little time daily or couple of times a week
- do search engine friendly-copy (truly user friendly copy is usually friendly for search engines)
- participate in the community discussions
- help around with docs and such
- SEO-related stuff, should you need it/want it
What I want to gain from this:
- help the project thrive, as I like it
- gain knowledge in developer-relations
- gain experience in evangelizing to a technical crowd as a sort of tech-liaison
- grow the geeko
If there's a strategy you guys have built, please let me know, so I can see how to help out. If not, I can help build one as that is my forte.
As we used to say -
have a lot of fun :)
