Re: [opensuse-project] openSUSE 2016: taking a picture of openSUSE today

And in terms of the project as a whole?

the project - distinc from the distribution - is largely invisible.

I was very much involved in openSUSE since the beginning, but had to step sideway for family problems, so for a bit more than 2 years I had a less inside vision of openSUSE.

I just kept using forum for help, as I still manage and install many openSUSE boxes. In my region, I'm the openSUSE boy (:-)

during this time I have not seen any project action apart from openSUSE Conference (I wished to attend Thessalonic one but couldn't)

it's not a criticism. I can see ubuntu project because there is an ubuntu-fr very active group (I'm french). The most visible project part are the goodies. dvd where very appreciated, but there are no more (I try now to discuss this on the ambassador list). The project is something geeks can appreciate, not really the others.

So in your opinion, increasing the maintenance cycle would be enough to get a
perception of being a competitor of Ubuntu LTS? Where (in which
niches/areas/market) do you think we could compete?

I follow loosely evergreen. I got the impression than the support is of 3 years *after* the end of the official support. Presently 11.4 will ony be removed from support and it's pretty old

Evergreen could certainly receive more help from the project, but still for pretty advanced users. openSUSE seems to have choosen a different way: allowing better support for updates, so if updates (for example from 12.3 to 13.1) is problemless, it's even better than LTS.

I'm pretty sure than a better *documentation* of the upgrade is the real better choice.
