openSUSE 11.1 is almost out of the door and we (coolo, aj, zonker
and myself) had some discussion about the release date for
openSUSE 11.2.

First we talked about July '09 release to come close to an 8
months release cycle. But KDE 4.3 is scheduled for release on
June 30th and probably an release will be out end
of June as well -

It is unlikely there will be any major update
released at the end of June - the release would be 3.1.1. 3.1 is
scheduled for March 25 currently.

both wouldn't make it into a July openSUSE 11.2. Therfor we're
now thinking about a September release. Beside of getting the
most current OpenOffice and KDE in thhis would even have one
additional upside. It probably would be just in front of our
openSUSE conference. So the conference could be used for very a
focused openSUSE 11.3 planning.
But it has its downside as well. Finalization of the release
would happen during the summer holiday season. To address this we
we added one Beta to stretch the development time a bit.

Here's what we're talking about:

2009-02-05 openSUSE 11.2 Alpha 0

Nearly 2 months to alpha 0 seems like a long time - is this simply
an infrastructure issue because of SLE 11?
There are 2 things. SLE 11 finalization phase which will keep many of
the internal guys busy. And the vacation season till mid of January.

What will the state of Factory be during this time?
Factory is ongoing synced out.
