Mighty goodlord, this is too much salestalk/marketspeak.
:) Sorry, that's the nature of such announcements - I promise to be
more human when I talk about it on Friday
The significant portion of SLE code is from openSUSE
open projects anyway, so that may not be all that exciting.
While that's partially true, I want to highlight that this includes
maintenance updates. That's certainly something new, and I think
exciting. More details on Friday (and to follow in the discussions and
such after I'm sure)
community distribution built upon this base can plan for
a sustainable stream of packages, as we intend to continue releasing
and updating this platform in line with the cadence of SUSE Linux
Enterprise and it's [sic] service packs.
Reads to me like "The openSUSE distribution converges with SLE and the
two become the new SUSE Linux (open, this time)".
Would not even be bad.
I wouldn't put it that way, but I think you're on the right track.
My talk will hopefully put some more 'meat on the bones' of such ideas
so we can discuss the best way forward.
PS. Please try and keep the discussions centred to opensuse-project
for now, I don't want to have to monitor all of our lists for
everyone's feedback, especially while I'm travelling to oSC
