I have some questions about Tumbleweed.
First of all, I wonder what the status is and will be. If someone enables
Tumbleweed on the upcoming 11.4, is it very likely that most packages will be
updated or are we still talking about a small subset?
I'm still working through this, but it looks like _every_ package will
be updated to start with. That's the safest way to get all of the
dependancies correct for any future changes that will be needed.
If anyone knows of a way to not do this, please let me know and I will
be glad to test it out, but so far in my testing, this seems needed.
Second and related to the first question, to what
extend should we promote
Tumbleweed? Is it a major 11.4 thing? Can we truly say Tumbleweed is something
people can and should use, will it offer a pretty-much-complete rolling-
release distro? (notice that this is relevant for our "why openSUSE" talking
points at )
Yes, I think so.
Third, if the answer to the second point is positive,
should we make it easy
somehow to enable Tumbleweed? Eg some tickbox on installation or in our
package management system?
A "one-click-install" should be provided, that should be all that is
needed. I don't know about installation time just yet, maybe 11.5/12.0
might be good for that, if at all.
Obviously, I love Tumbleweed - for the
slightly-more-experienced linux user
and for those who love the latest & greatest it is awesome - and this happens
to be a pretty big chunk of our target usergroup :D
On a personal note, I also love Tumbleweed because I think rolling-release
stuff rocks - I come from Arch and frankly it's the major thing I loved about
Great, glad to hear it.
Oh, one question for you, how do I go about getting some artwork for the
Tumbleweed project created? Any ideas?
