Good news: we once want to distribute openSUSE 11.3 contributor boxes!
Hi, it took a little bit longer than initially planned. The boxes are ready and during this week we or our distributor send the free evaluation boxes to the openSUSE contributors and you translators. It will probably take some additional days until the boxes arrive.
Depending on your location, I'd say we should wait one or two additional weeks until we must check why the box did not arrive at your end.
I received my box today but I actually returned it unopened. Otherwise I would have had to pay a 36 Euro customs charge.
It does not really matter because I suppose the shipment did not contain anything else than the openSUSE DVD, which I of course have already dowloaded and burned.
It is nevertheless a litte strange because some of us had this problem some years ago also. Therefore openSUSE changed their shipment method (or contents labelling?) to avoid customs charges, but I suppose we are back to the old method again :).
