A good symbol to go along with the release of openSUSE Leap 15.3 I
believe is the yin and yang. I propose that artwork to market this
release show the symbiotic relationship of Leap and SLE with a yin yang
design. The imagery should help with the marketing. I put the topic in
the marketing work group notes - https://etherpad.opensuse.org/p/153wg.
If you have any designs you want to share or other ideas on this topic,
I'd love to read it.
could please add me  to the openSUSE GitHub organization?
Specifically, I need access to the rpmlint repos. I assume a colleague
can grant me the necessary privileges there, once I'm part of the

today it is my pleasure to thank two of our members, which is always
a nice thing:
Andrew Wafaa, for serving as our treasurer for many years and helping
with the travel support program (TSP) among others.
And Syds Bearda for stepping up and agreeing to become our new treasurer.
Syds has been a financial controller/accountant for 15 years, in a
variety of businesses and freelancing, and is an expert in "everything
with computers and numbers".
There is not a lot of travel going on these days, sadly (and Doug has
been skillfully helping with TSP), but hopefully that will change. ;-)
In addition Syds and me will be looking to create a budget overview
around openSUSE with the help of colleagues at SUSE.
Please join me in thanking Andrew and welcoming Syds to the role!

I would like to move the following repos to the openSUSE Github
The suserpmutil repo has utilities for vendoring Rust and Go modules. The
scripts are rather simple but they get the vendor tarballs created with
with advanced versions of v8.
Also if possible, I would like to join the public list at:
we've had a beta submission deadline last Wednesday however all
required changes were not yet accepted in SUSE Linux Enterprise.
We expect changes to land today/tomorrow. This will then trigger quite
some rebuilds on the Leap side. Keep in mind that openSUSE Leap 15.3 is
newly based on SLE 15 SP3 binaries so we really have to mirror SLE in
We were originally aiming for having some publishable build by this
Wednesday* but this won't be the case. I'm optimistically aiming for
having an SLE 15 SP3 Public Beta-based build in openqa by end of this
week and perhaps something publishable by Wednesday. This of course
will be all driven by the test results of the build(s).
Thank you for your understanding

FWI, am still having issues rebuilding rpm due to path
mismatches between RH file layouts in the rpm and where the
opensuse spec file is looking for things.
I had hoped that rpm-config-suse might hold the config for
building the rpm with opensuse paths, but this hope was dashed.
Maybe I should file a bug against rpm-config-suse? I dunno?

In the wake of the post survey discussions, a bunch of volunteers have
risen to the challenges of improving diversity, knowledge transfer and
cross-community bonds: https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Newscom
We feel like a bi-weekly newsletter might work for that, to be served on
our web platforms and shipped in the form of a mobile screen friendly
newsletter, available in the most spoken languages in the community (for
starters: Spanish, Indonesian, Brazilian Portuguese, Russian) and
broadcast across all information channels available.
Unlike its glorious ancestor
(https://en.opensuse.org/Archive:Weekly_news_99) the newsletter will
have both a cultural and a technical facet. You'll learn more about the
former in our upcoming call for participants, but I'd like to ask you
something about the latter: would some of you -- I have in mind
contributors to 101.opensuse.org, package maintainers and Heroes -- be
interested in, respectively:
- being advertised in our first issue (to fix ideas: we could write an
article about 101.opensuse.org and encourage people from these
communities to participate as either maintainers, mentors or mentees)
- having their package spotlit, simply to make it more visible or
attract new maintainers
- highlight key areas in our infrastructure, platforms and activities
that could benefit from more volunteers.
Do let us know!
