So, for now, this will be a 'community release'. This might
mean less QA but also no security updates provided by SUSE!

Does this essentially mean that SUSE doesn?t want to participate
in the openSUSE release anymore?

As Michal can't speak for all of SUSE, maybe it means that the
openSUSE team does not want to participate in the openSUSE release


I don't understand what I'm reading. It seems that SUSE wants to kill
openSUSE, by abandoning it...

openSUSE is NOT getting abandoned!

The openSUSE Team @ SUSE has the prerogative to decide what they want to work on within the project, just like everybody else.

So far the openSUSE Team has done most of the heavy lifting when it came to turning the crank of getting the release out the door. This work is moving into the background for them and that's fair enough. As stated above, just like everyone else they get to decide what they work on.

The negative side effect of the decision is that we as a whole are not immediately prepared to fill the gap left behind. Just like we would not be prepared if the whole GNOME team would now decide to no longer do GNOME. The rest of us have to figure out a way how to move forward without the openSUSE Team doing the heavy lifting, or potentially any lifting, when it comes to turning the release crank.

We can debate whether the approach taken fits within peoples' expectations or is in the spirit of the community, but that debate will not help us. The cards are on the table lets move on. How do we get the next release out the door and when is it going to be, July, November, some other date, see the "Releases going forward" thread in the factory list.
