Hi All,

openSUSE project has nearly done it's 12.2 release !

One great feature to have - is blue-ray disc (BD) install media, in
addition to current DVD media. Why ?
Because it allows you download once, install everywhere, and
blazing-fast speeds, saving a lot of user time later from downloading
packages on-demand.

Plus, it will once again let people enjoy the whole openSUSE
experience from a single media, and have a new marketing factor to
tell to the press release guys.

The BD media should include the full openSUSE repository on a single
media. One BD for 32-bit and another BD for 64-bit PC.
Availability should be via bittorrent protocol-only, if the FTP
server's capacity is limited.
As a side bonus, BD media will let enjoy full openSUSE on offline workstations.
BD media is risk-free bonus, a feature that will not introduce
regressions into current DVD media anyway, and in fact can be done few
days post-release, if time is an issue.

I'm looking forward into this release !

Best wishes and thanks to all the hard-working people,
-Alexey Eromenko "Technologov"
