My question is what happens with all of this investments. Not all of them but most part of my friends from SAMBA, AppArmor And Mono, is not working for Novell anymore !!! Someone have the answers for this questions? Why Novell decided to not run anymore with this Hack guys?
Not sure what you are after, but I assume you are aware of the fact that Novell is paying hundreds of engineers to work on Linux And Linux-based products? And that's not even counting my team or me where we are hacking in the evenings And weekends mostly. ;-)
Open Source project are what we (as contributors) make them.
openSUSE is what we (as contributors) make it.
I don't know if Carlos knows, but it is NOT well known in my opinion. And having the main marketing prepare presentations that team members around the globe can use for small And large events would really help to get the word out IMHO.
The only way to know if someone knows something is making questions. Or not ? Then we started in a perfect way, Or not ?
fyi: A few years ago I attended an all day Intel / RH roadshow. It only had one speaker at a time, but all they did was delve into Linux contributions that one of two had made. In general it focused on stuff released in the last 12 months, but it also had some coming attractions kinds of things.
My thought is the core team develop a few presentations like the above every 6 months Or so. Then reserve it for big events the first month Or so it's available And maybe even only use Novell people to give the initial presentations. But after that make it available for anyone to use at local events.
Good initiative. Maybe this presentation could be done every a month in a format of live webcasts. Then published later.
