I just wanted to state how I'm feeling when trying to participate in
openSUSE. It does not really make fun this way, I'm already feeling
that I'm wasting too much time which I could use better. And I could
imagine others feel like this, too, while other distros offer easy-to-
use interfaces to their community.

and if I visited your home and told you that your living room couch and
end tables would look much better facing the other window and the lamps
were not complementary of your decor, you would probably be pissssssed.
why do you think it is ok to do the same to openSUSE users? what do you
think the response world/will be?

try and be just a little considerate, NEW-COMER.

That's not nice at all. If anything, newcomer feedback is tremendously
more important than old-timers when it comes to these kinds of things.
If the goal of openSUSE is to draw in users to become contributors,
you can't act like that and expect people to want to stay.

Heck, in Fedora, we *developed* HyperKitty and Posterius for Mailman 3
specifically to address this pain point.

As for improving openSUSE infrastructure, my understanding is that
this is fundamentally not possible, as mailing lists (mlmmj) and the
issue tracker (bugzilla) are maintained by SUSE/Micro Focus employees
exclusively. The best we can do is complain about it.
