One of the things we think is needed is to update the documentation related with the release. We thought it was the first step to go through the entire process, analyze it and improve it for future releases.
So, we are talking internally with the people involved in previous releases collecting what they did, trying to have a simple document as an early result. Yes, this is preventing some of us on focusing on "real release work" for a few days, but we hope that will save us time in the near future.
Whatever we do can only ever be partial if we do not take account of the huge amount of work on openSUSE done by the community.
So next week, we will publish a draft describing the release processes, so that you can give us input for an open release process. The goal is not to have a perfect document this first iteration, but a useful document. This draft will include the actual 12.2 release date. As you can see, we are aiming to meet the adjusted schedule.
1. There's quite a bit of documentation - which collection are you focusing on? 2. Is there anything us English-speaking-only community members can do to help?
BTW, it looks like 12.2 RC2 is stable enough for "everyday use" now on my two machines. I'm still running it only in virtual machines because the machine my spare partition lives on is being used as a data collection server and can't be rebooted for another few days. But it will definitely get RC2 some time next week on bare metal.
