Continuous Integration testing for openSUSE available!

November 10th, 2011 by

Front page of CI.opensuse.org
The development process of the Open Build Service (OBS) code base as well as it’s accompanying tools is largely test-driven. Major parts of the OBS source code are covered by a comprehensive test-suite. Traditionally, after each new code submission, these tests have been run by a custom shell-script on a local machine that wasn’t publicly available for several reasons. Even though this setup served us well for a long time, but we needed more. We want to provide a more transparent solution that allows the community to participate and maybe take over some responsibilities. Thus, your hard-working OBS-team hereby kindly introduces ci.opensuse.org, our new public interface for continuous integration (CI) testing!

Geekos go on G+

November 8th, 2011 by


The IT world moves fast and along with it does social networking. It’s been only a few days since Google announced the limited availability of Google+ pages and already thousands of Google-plussers have created a Google+ page. Of course, we’re social too and thus the openSUSE project now has an official Google+ page!

The Green Planet

November 7th, 2011 by

The last few days those of you linked to the planet by http://planetsuse.org/ are experiencing connection problems. This is not because openSUSE Planet is down but as Pascal Bleser announced a few days ago into the openSUSE Project ML because this domain name is not under the Project’s control but by and individual who left the openSUSE Project some years ago.

The only way to go to the openSUSE planet is now by typing http://planet.opensuse.org/ and the correct way to connect your RSS is by adding that .xml .

My Sixth Birthday Party

A little over two weeks left for openSUSE 12.1 to be released on November, 16th 2011. And there is no better way to enjoy the new release than with your fellow openSUSE peers. So, attend or organize a Launch Party! These events around the openSUSE release can be anything – from a party in a pub to a series of presentations at an office. But there is a common theme: cool people sharing some fun and talks around the latest openSUSE release!

Read more on how to find out if there is a release party in your neighborhood or how to organize one!

openSUSE Medical Project searches for new Leadership and other participation

October 31st, 2011 by

Hello Mates! openSUSE Medical here!

Well i would to announce that “openSUSE Medical Calling and also needs you”

a) Due to lack of time (i’ve began my Master Studies abroad) i’ve to give up from the project. I think that there are people who are able to lead the project and have more time available.

So “Looking for openSUSE Medical Next Leader”

b) I have created two pages (according to the last meeting’s goals) :

i) “Section Page” : http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Medical/section.html
ii) “Participate Page” : http://en.opensuse.org/Portal:Medical/participate.html

The process is you have a look at the Sections and then you declare your participation in the “Participate Page” (according to the instructions given in the pages).

So the project needs you for:

a) “The Next Project Leader”

b) “Participants for the Sections”

Anyone interested in (a) or (b) can reply to this e-mail or can post an e- mail to the opensuse-medical@opensuse.org
