I was also expecting to find a source ISO, but I guess there aren't any?
FYI, I can't find any ISO images through that. The links lead back to download.opensuse.org.
The link says that you can order a source DVD via snail mail. It's about 11.1, but is most likely for 11.2 as well.
Michal, thanks, I _did_ read that. Any particular reason why those ISO images aren't provided for download?
We have already problems finding mirrors to mirror the source rpms, double the content is not really helping here.
Also, you typically only need the sources of some packages, where you want to have a look and not all of them. It would be just a waste of resources IMHO.
And in the end, I consider src.rpms anyway as resource waste. It is way more easy to stay update 2 date with osc. You can check out the source where you are interessted in with it (or also all from a project), you can read the history, you can easily keep up 2 date and you can even fix something via that. You have also one interface to get all different versions of sources between the distro versions, the updates and user variations.
All of that is not doable via offering source rpms, so, maybe we can get rid of src rpms at all later ...
