is a great start.
Another question is about some kind of
policies & procedures, instructions or any other approved way to include
some of my packages to the upcoming release of OpenSUSEi (11.1).
I can only remember 3 requirements:
one requirement: Find somebody within Novell who is willing to co-maintain the
package with you and do the novell-internal bits (like setting up the devel
repository in the OBS, accepts your OBS submission requests, reviews them and
submits them to factory). Unfortunately there is no real procedure for finding
a person yet. The best way is to formally ask on this mailing list if somebody
wants to step up to be that person for you. We have an e17n maintainer
internally. if all else fails you should try contacting him.
The other requirement is that you're willing to maintain the package, make
sure that it builds and that you accept bugreports against it and promise to
work on them as your time permits.
The last one is that you've signed the opensuse guiding principles and want to
become (or already are) an opensuse member.
Thanks for asking, I hope those requirements are not a problem for you :)
Thanks Dirk for an answer.
May I kindly ask here, in opensuse-packaging mailing list, is there a
person from Novell who wish to co-maintain EFL/Enlightenment-DR17
packages (and include them into the next release of OpenSUSE)?
If someone wish to evaluate the benefits of it - here's an Enlightenment

And I'm talking only about core minimum (see the pattern):
