The board hopes that with the changes outlined above the contents of the firstname.lastname@example.org will go back to just being general distro development discussion so if your post to openSUSE factory is something other then that think twice about where the more appropriate place to post is.
Actually the posts "foo seems broken for me after $DATE snapshot" are the most useful content for me on factory@ Now I am supposed to scan bugzilla for problems before "zypper dup"? To quote an almost famous SUSE employee: "Kein f*ckender Weg!" ;-) (sorry, the joke works only in german)
The new tumbleweed snapshots will continue to be posted to factory but we would ask you do not reply to them in order to report issues / bugs. If a bug is reported that a package maintainer believes will cause significant issues for most tumbleweed users ie not being able to boot / login or severe data loss we still invite the maintainer to post a warning to opensuse-factory but such issues happen very rarely and as such we don't expect to see many such posts.
This will make opensuse-factory "mostly useless" for me and I will probably stop reading it on a regular base. I will not subscribe to a "-support" list. As I had pointed out to a board member in person in Prague already, the current style of opensuse-factory worked just fine for me (maybe drop the flamewars). If opensuse-factory is ever returned to its current modus operandi, then please someone ping me, so I might start reading it agin. P.S.: I would be slightly interested in a description of the problem this change is supposed to solve... -- Stefan Seyfried "For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled." -- Richard Feynman -- To unsubscribe, e-mail: email@example.com To contact the owner, email: firstname.lastname@example.org
