I would like to share some great news with you on behalf of the
openSUSE Release team.
openSUSE Leap 15.3 Build 160.3 was accepted as the Gold Master. So
we're on time for the planned Global Availability next week on the 2nd
of June. Submissions that didn't make it will have be released as
The entire openSUSE release team would like to give a big thanks to all
of you who participated in the release. You all made Leap 15.3 happen!
Talking about dates, I'd like to correct my previous statement about
SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP3 GM date as it happened last Thursday,
therefore according to the schedule. There seem to have been some
miscommunication on both sides.
Some changes to the release process that you will most likely notice.
We did adapt the release process to pre-agreed changes from openSUSE
Leap 15.2 retrospective and will no longer explicitly hide images. We
expect to eliminate any issues on the mirror side. We've had a
discussion about this on last year's retrospective review. The outcome
can be found in
We also improved the signing of images as suggested in the

The official release announcement will be sent on the 2nd of June as
planned in our https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Roadmap
This date is important not only from a marketing point of view but also
for the 0day maintenance part of the release. Some updates that we'd
like to have available with the GA are aiming at that date.
Same as last year, the Release retrospective survey will be open on GA
day. We'd like to kindly you about what went well and what didn't go
too well in this release. We will then review it together on my
Workshop on the upcoming *oSVC2021.
Thank you very much for all the hard work!
