Your TSP Team
It has already been a year since the first iteration of the openSUSE Summit held in Orlando Florida. Our guests and organizers agreed that tying this community event at the end of SUSEcon is a very good idea and it was set to be repeated in 2013 as well. If you live in the Northern part of the U.S.A. then you know that November can be very cold, therefore, our organizers decided to go back to Florida this year and have everyone warm up to the never-ending summer in the peach state. Our event website is up and running and registrations are open! (more…)

Starting today, you can scurry over to software.opensuse.org, grab that beta by its tail and give it a spin. And report your findings, because we want to squash those smelly little bugs out of it during our hackaton. So, shove a pizza in that oven, settle with your laptop next to a roaring fire and a big glas of mead and start testing!
Read on to find out what’s new in this beta, what we’d like you to test and of course what is up with that Party and that Hackaton. (more…)
- It is already September! Haven’t you noticed? Bad weather is coming, it will be freezing soon!
According to the roadmap, Full Feature Freeze will be upon openSUSE Factory on September the 19th. On that day, openSUSE 13.1 Beta will see the harsh light of day.
But already, the Toolchain and Base System are deeply frozen and only leaf packages have time left to scurry in. Two weeks, to be exact, 14 days and it will be Winter in Factory. Time to get your package updates in before they freeze in the cold! Read on to learn how to make it happen. (more…)
openSUSE Milestone 4, and final Milestone before starting the Beta process, is out for everyone to test.

There will be plenty to talk about and it is also a good opportunity for you to present on what your worked on for 13.1. Do not miss the fun! (more…)
