Hey all!

Sorry for the late response, long travelling hours and still trying to
get settled :)

I am really happy that we already have people replying, giving ideas
and ready to help out.

As this is a totally new idea we highly value opinions and ideas.

@Chuck: Technical articles like that are certainly useful. Please let
me know with which article you would like to begin! - Regarding
tips&tricks this is also great for weekly news and at the same time
maybe we can find useful tips/tricks in older weekly news issues and
use them all together - some of them are not too long articles and the
subject is definitely interesting. Do you think you could take this up
on you as well and prepare something for a tips&tricks section of the

@Kim: People's view is very important and I believe would also
personalize the magazine. So I would say go for it! Clarification:
when you say documentary, are you thinking video or written interview
- because documentary brings video in my mind but we need
articles/writing. So how are you thinking of beginning this?

@piyoosh: Yep, it will definitely *not* include just events. It will
certainly have a large variety of topics related to openSUSE, that's
why we need ideas from all of you.

@Elson: sure, help and motivation for new users I believe is always
something we want, right? Step-by-step tutorials, tips&tricks for
users are all very useful things. Do you have something specific in
mind? Could you prepare a relevant article? Or do we have any
interesting articles already written which we could perhaps edit if
needed and use?

@Mike: perfect, if you want to write something please feel free to do
so, otherwise as soon as we organize all the ideas we could make some
proposals on subjects that need articles and you can choose, what do
you think?

@Tanmaya: Absolutely, release related articles are generally needed,
so yes, please get right to it. I assume you could write something
about 12.1 release?

@Peter: Success stories are always something positive and we
definitely want positiveness in our magazine, right? Do you have
something specific in mind you could put in writing?

I would like to point out that it is amazing how many nice ideas we
got and I really hope we can see some articles as well soon. Many
articles could also be used immediately and be issued in weekly news
or and when time comes of course to our magazine!

As we still have not concluded regarding the exact structure of the
magazine we don't really know exactly how many articles we will need
for each subject etc. It could be the case that we might need not to
use some articles, *but* this should not discourage absolutely anyone
from writing because we will surely use your article one way or the

The first step for the magazine is to get some context for it - your
articles that is :)

We will have a variety of subjects, from technical to simple things
for newbies and we will focus on communities, individuals as well as
events that have taken place. Maybe this is also a good chance for
ambassadors to send something like a review regarding events that took
place in their city/country? What do ambassadors think about that?

We are still open for ideas and with Prashanth we will be processing
all that info really soon (plz give us a couple of days as we just got
back from Germany) and we will put everything together so that
everyone knows where we stand on subjects.

In the meantime, we are looking forward to receiving your articles and
if you need any kind of clarification or assistance please let us

I think if we can get an article for all the above subjects that all
of you mentioned it is an excellent start for our magazine-effort :)

Thanks to all,
Stella Rouzi (aka differentreality)
