The openSUSE Project announces the 1.0 release of the unique cross-distribution-capable, fully automated testing framework openQA. openQA is the only comprehensive testing tool which can run tests on every level of the OS, from core functionality like the bootloader and booting the kernel up to testing applications like Firefox and LibreOffice. It shows the results in a convenient web interface and allows testers to see screenshots and even videos of the issues found. openQA is used to run nightly tests of the ‘Factory’ development repository for the upcoming openSUSE 12.1 release. openQA is available under the GPL version 2 or later.
The OBS-Team is going to replace some backend servers on next Tuesday.
Therefore, a downtime is scheduled from 08:00 to 11:00 CEST, altough we believe it won’t take that long (but you never know) :-)
Afterwards, the OBS should be prepared for all the awesome packager workshops happening during the openSUSE Conference.
Aloha openSUSE Users!
Now is an excellent time to help openSUSE! If you have openSUSE running on your system, all you have to do is add your hardware to the openSUSE Hardware compatibility List. Add your pheriphials like printers, scanners and webcams. Or add internal stuff like graphics and sound cards, mother boards, wifi cards and every thing else from your netbooks, notebooks, desktops and workstations!
We are currently facing a hardware problem with the openSUSE Build Service.
Affected services are:
We are trying to resolve this as fast as possible. Apologies for inconveniences this may cause.
Please contact email@example.com with any queries.

Update 18:53 UTC: Everything is up and running again. Note the build service scheduler needs to read all files now and create some data structures. It will take a few hours until the build service is building again packages.
Yesterday was World IPv6 Day and openSUSE participated in it. We hope the experiment was as successful for the other participants as it was for us!
Here is a short status update from the openSUSE infrastructure. openSUSE has currently two major server locations and we tested IPv6 at both separately.Â Note that there are more openSUSE infrastructure locations, including the server which runs the popular planet.opensuse.org (which supports IPv6 as well now)!

The openSUSE kernel developers have recently announced that the kernel git trees have moved to kernel.opensuse.org/git, providing better reliability than gitorious. Gitorious had trouble with cloning the nearly 1GB repository sometimes, but the developers will keep syncing to gitorious so nothing should break. Moreover, kernel.opensuse.org offers an easy interface to install openSUSE kernels on a variety of openSUSE releases.
In a little over a week it will be World IPv6 day. This day is meant to call attention to the fact that IPv4 addresses have run out and the web has to move on to IPv6. openSUSE will be part of this initiative, joining the ranks of Google, Yahoo and Facebook in making sure its infrastructure is IPv6 capable on June 8th.

The openSUSE Build Service Team has decided to rename its cutting-edge packaging- and distribution build technology to Open Build Service. The new name, while maintaining the well-known OBS acronym, signals its open and cross-distribution nature. (more…)
Sorry, but we expect our main mailing-lists server (lists.opensuse.org) and our features server (features.opensuse.org) to stay down for some more minutes than expected: the systems reported a file system corruption and running a file system check right now.
Expected recovery time: Thu May 26 12:00:00 CEST 2011
We apologize for any inconvenience.
