Systemd needs your feedback

The team welcomes help and bugreports as we prepare for the first release of openSUSE to use systemd.

Hands on to help out easier than ever!

Your input at this early development stage is a great opportunity to collaborate in making the final release into the polished work we always prosecute for. openSUSE 12.1 Milestone 3 has a list of most annoying bugs here, please add issues you find and help fix them. As Will Stephenson has already blogged, fixing an issue is a matter of BURPing on build.opensuse.org! Find a how-to here.

So go and see for yourself what the next version of openSUSE has in store for you at our download center.
