Linux Kernel Development List for openSUSE

July 31st, 2007 by

We have a new mailing list: opensuse-kernel (subscribe via lists.opensuse.org).

This list is dedicated to the discussion of the openSUSE kernel development (Factory et al) and the kernels in the openSUSE Build Service. Packaging or openSUSE-specific patches (though hopefully rare and growing more so) are on-topic; general Linux kernel development is best served by the existing public lists (LKML et al).

Call for openSUSE Translations

July 27th, 2007 by

There have been several requests from community members on the mailing lists to join language teams for the languages Brazilian Portuguese, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Spanish and Traditional Chinese. We have now decided to open up the translation process completely and not put any restrictions on it. Therefore I invite you to create language teams for those eight languages mentioned above, join one of the existing teams or start a new language team for a language we currently do not support. If you’re interested, please mail on the opensuse-translation mailing list which team you like to create – or join!
