With the announcement
The really shows just how commited the openSUSE Management are with
regrads to the community. I have to admit I was firmly in the openSLES
camp prior to a few email discussions and the results of the above email.
We now have the oportunity to now really be able to provide and openSUSE LTS
with out a lot of obstucales. In the various talks we have had it appears the
given the current economic climit, we could posssibly do more harm than good
with an openSLES. Most of the members that have stepped up to be willing to do
the security updates and back ports have come from the openSUSE community.
There have been talks with the SLES managment and the ones that I thought would
be behind such and effort right now see it as more of a problem; Natuarlly
there are those that are the free-loaders, who do not steop up to the plate.
Also I was in hopes of gaining support from Novell in the form of a free SLSE
with updates so we do not in any way endanger current licenses. We need to
take this all in mind with our decisison as to which initiative we choose.
This is the current state.
