I would like to become involved in the release management for openSUSE
Tumbleweed, and I hope I'm addressing this message to the proper channel.
If there is a more appropriate forum for this kind of request, then I'd
appreciate if someone could point me into the right direction.
I'm a member of the SUSE packagers team and my role there is, mostly, to
handle Emergency Updates. In that function, I've been involved in SLE
release management for a while now. I've also contributed a handful of
packages to openSUSE Leap and Tumbleweed, and I've benefited a lot from
the feedback and testing efforts the review team kindly provided.
These experiences have made me curious about the inner workings of the
distribution. Being exposed to the process from the user / developer side
of things has given me a few insights, but I still feel like I don't know
enough. Therefore, I'd like to volunteer some of my time for helping with
the management of Tumbleweed. I figure, the best thing to do would be to
take care those tasks related to devel:languages:haskell at first that
other people are doing for me today, like, managing the appropriate adi
staging areas, ensuring nothing breaks due to new submissions, etc. I
could basically take some workload off the current team and kind-of eat my
own dog food to get familiar with the procedures more than I am today.
That should allow me to take on other responsibilities and get involved
more in tasks outside of my "sandbox", so I can contribute to the effort
to a greater extend.
I've been a professional software engineer working with Unix/Linux for
some 20 years or so, and I've also contributed to Gentoo, ArchLinux, and
NixOS before, so I believe it's a reasonable assumption that I can grow
into a productive role in the team without breaking everything in the
I'm curious to find out what you folks think about the whole idea and look
forward to your feedback.

The anouncement of a rolling release mode development for Leap 42.3 was
a great thing.
I can't say if that it's a great thing or not for the release in
But I think that it's not a great thing for marketing side...
There are many people out there that it's not a fanboy/girl of openSUSE,
just GNU/Linux users tha use openSUSE.
With milestones, with every release that creates expectations, reviews
in webs or screencasts. a lot of stuff about openSUSE with a new release
to test, etc...
So now, how will community say: hey, we are doing a great new openSUSE
version try it and test it!
Are you gonna make some noise with a new snapshot published? or maybe a
just my opinion
Greetings and have a lot of fun!
