That's right.

As someone suggested a discussion about that at oSC, I wonder if this
is a 'done deal', did you guys solve that, or is it worth discussing
at oSC?

Well as I wrote the marketing aspect of it isn't. I certainly think it
would be a nice idea for you to discuss this.

I meant to say that unless you guys 'solved' the whole thing entirely (eg
there is, according to you, no way to do more to get ppl to contribute to
factory) it might be worth doing a BoF about this to gather more ideas,
discuss future plans and hopefully decide (with some community members) on
what to do next and who does it in this area.

Hm I don't know. Of course there could be more Ideas but for a session I
would like to have something tangible instead of just brainstorming.
That doesn't lead anywhere I think.

If you think the only thing left to do is marketing, I'd be happy to shoot in
that session but you or someone else from the boosters has to be there to
us what you guys did up to now and what needs to be marketed and to who ;-)

And that is something tangible. A session about developer marketing. So
far we neglect this side of things in the marketing team. Everything is
mostly about the Distribution and the users. I think you should make a
session that tries to find an answer to this question:

How can we market openSUSE Factory as most important point of contribution?

I'll attend.
