Greek sub-forum @ openSUSE Forums

December 7th, 2010 by

We are pleased to announce the Greek sub-forum is now live and ready for business. I have been working closely with: @warlordfff, who will be one of the Forum Moderators. The full list of openSUSE forum Moderators can be seen here: http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Forums_team

openSUSE forums offers a warm welcome to all language groups and we are especially pleased to see the successful launch of the Greek Forum. Now if only I was fluent in Greek! I could make this announcement look really impressive. Enjoy.

openSUSE makes a splash at Latinoware

openSUSE Brasileiros

The openSUSE Brasileiros!

A few weeks ago, Latinoware offered an opportunity for the Brazilian openSUSE ambassadors to organize an ambassador meeting, combined with a great showing at the Latinoware event itself. The ambassadors gave a series of talks and workshops while answering questions at the booth and helping users with the installation of openSUSE. International visitors Bryen Yushenko and Jos Poortvliet flew in to attend the ambassador meeting, get to know the team and give keynotes about the importance of accessibility and the openSUSE community itself. It is safe to say that the event was hugely successful and of course a lot of fun!


Updating openSUSE Manuals for openSUSE 11.4

December 7th, 2010 by

With the openSUSE distribution, we have a set of openSUSE manuals and QuickStart guides. You can read them online via http://doc.opensuse.org.  They are installed by default on your system so you can access them there as

For openSUSE 11.4, we face the usual challenge of updating the manuals: The documentation writers know what’s in the manuals but do not know everything that’s changed and the developers know what’s changed but may not know all the manuals.

For openSUSE 11.4, I created feature 310944 Read the documentation at doc.opensuse.orgin openFATE which will be the one reference point for documentation. Please add there things that need to be changed in the manuals. I’ve already added a few things that came to mind.

The Novell documentation team will concentrate on updating the Startup Guide, the GNOME and KDE Quick Guides and the Reference guide. They plan to also add a short chapter on the top use cases so that for example new users know to use LibreOffice as their Office Suite and where to find more information about it.

If anybody is interested in helping improve the documentation, please reach out to the documentation team on the opensuse-doc mailing list or on IRC on the #opensuse-doc channel on the freenode network. You can also find the sources of the manuals at https://developer.berlios.de/projects/opensuse-doc/.

Call for help

Please add to feature 310944 new comments that explain what needs to be changed in the manuals for openSUSE 11.4.
