On Thursday's meeting (Thursday at 19:00 UTC), we will go over plans for
marketing for ALP. Trying to get an idea about how we want people to
talk about ALP. We'll discuss it and see what type of narrative we can
develop for it.
We will also go over the asknot-ng ymls.
The meeting will be in https://meet.opensuse.org/meeting
You can view the meeting notes at
The Leap 15.4 retrospective survey is still open until 22.06.2022 at
You can access the survey at survey.opensuse.org.
If you downloaded Leap 15.4, please make sure to give us feedback.
It will not take more than 2 minutes as the survey has only two
We have not received even half of the responses that we have received
for 15.3. The openSUSE release team would highly appreciate any sharing
I personally think that this is a concern that should be also shared
with our marketing team looping them in.
We probably need to advertise server, edge stories bit more in our
annoucements. There will be a bit more EDGE advertisment in Micro
Thank you for raising the concern

openSUSE Leap Release Manager
Hello openSUSE marketing team
I'd like to ask you for a help with refreshed Leap 15.4 wallpaper.
Original plan that we've communicated on the community meeting was that
SUSE Branding team will provide us wallpapers with SLES look and feel,
but that idea seem to have faded, as team is not able to deliver it in
our Beta timeframe. But that opens a new door to us.
I'd like to ask you for a help to make a call for refreshed Leap 15.4
Ideally the wallpaper should reflect the transformation that has
happened to Leap over past two years (Closing the Leap Gap), where Leap
is now combination of SLES rpms and Community rpms. I personally like
to refer to this as a bridge in between Community and Enterprise. But
any ideas are welcome :-)
Any ideas for campaign that could be driven by the openSUSE marketing
Ideal deadline to have the wallpaper would be the Leap 15.4 Beta code
submission deadline is February 16th which leaves is with bit more than
a month. https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Roadmap
Let's collaborate in https://github.com/openSUSE/branding/issues/132

Since April 2021 the official Spanish forum for openSUSE (forosuse.org
since was outside openSUSE infra) was offline due technichal issues
(vBulletin version, PHP, hosting issues, etc)
The current moderators were waiting since then for the Admin to fix this
issues (also we provided help or support with that), but we didn't get
news about the process. So we decided to ask help and a place in
Malcom Lewis and Jim Henderson have done the best and now, we have a
spanish forum inside openSUSE infra, great!! :) (but still is not
available for everyone)
I want to ask if a text as anouncement (available in etherpad.o.o¹) of
the new "release" of spanish forum inside forums.o.o written by mods can
be published in news.o.o?
But, we don't have a date which spanish forum will be open for everyone.
If the text fits in news.o.o when we have the final date I can share
here to publish the text...

Following a little bit of this topic:
There's already a Spanish translation team for the news being
coordinated via Telegram, our goal is to give Spanish speakers a
transparent way to get them.
Currently we're trying to publish in external platforms, however our
goal is to have a space inside the News portal kind of like the former
openSUSE Weekly News; meaning having multiple language translations
not just Spanish.
So, I'm submitting this idea for everyone to consider it's viability,
or whatever needs to be done to collaborate.

openSUSE - The makers' choice for sysadmins, developers and desktop users.
Last year we participated in Hacktoberfest, which is an event run by
Digital Ocean and DEV that encourages people to make their first
contributions to open source projects.
The event is a month away and it would be ideal to have a few projects
within openSUSE host an event. Whether it is an event to teach people
about a project, teach someone how to maintain a package or just a class
abou improving documentation, any contribution will help.
There is a page about Hacktoberfest on
https://etherpad.opensuse.org/p/hacktoberfest2021 where you can list
your ideas. I'll put the topic on the list for our community meetings so
we can discuss it later today and next week.
Get more info about Hacktoberfest at,
We've been doing our sprints every first Thursday of the Month at 18:30
UTC. The community meetings conflict with that timeframe. I recommend we
participate in the community meetings as some of the topics listed are
similar to what we had been focusing on in our monthly meetings. Does
that sound good? What do you all think?
