As of right now we still have a release cycle of 8 month. That would put us into May for openSUSE 13.2.

This brings about two questions:

- Given the current situation can we meet a May release date?
- Do we skip the May release and move to a yearly cycle and release 13.2 in November of 2014?

During last year's discussions there were a number of people favoring a yearly release cycle. We have to make a decision,

- stick to 8 month or move to 12 month?

Voice your opinion but stick to the point and please be concise. For simplicity lets just assume that there will be no full time paid help to turn the release crank and that the work is all on those that are not part of the openSUSE Team.

Question to the SLE Team:
- What's the planned release / gold-master date for SLE-12?

Why? IMHO releaseing the next OSS (13.2) at least 4-8 weeks prior to
that would give the SLE team some time to cleanup the remaining /
fresh detected issues and eleminate them before publishing them
to paying customers.

Whether 8 or 12 month, it's a question of 'how much "freshness" would we
(as distro) loose' -- personally nothing against 12 month cycle.

Thanks for all the effort, time, sweat, and tears.

S.u.S.E. Professional started off as a paid-for distribution in 2 flavlurs:

1) where you only received 3 months of support; and

2) at an additional cost you received support until .......(?).

So, what is the cost of SLE? and can it be transformed into its original form as I just described above?

Casting openSUSE to the wind is the same as what Canonical did to Kubuntu.


A civilisation is judged by how it treats the most vulnerable.
