Having a party to celebrate an achievement is rewarding and the openSUSE community knows how to party; and get things done. This is no exception during the time of the pandemic.
A release party is in order for the general availability of openSUSE Leap 15.2. Celebrate the release the way you like and while doing so help promote the release.
openSUSE members can join and/or create a room to hang out with other members of the community to celebrate the release. There are already a couple planned for July 2. Just visit the launch party wiki and select or add a release party. While this list is mostly virtual, some people might be close enough to meet up for a physical party. In which case, they should add it to the list. People can also get creative make the parties purposeful like creating one room as a social media posting party.
We encouraging people to take photos and/or screenshot of their virtual release party and share it on social media with the slogan “#openSUSE is for everyone!” Make something like an openSUSE cupcake or print out one of the beer labels and put it on a bottle of whatever you’re drinking. “Bring Back Old Toad!” :-) Use Gimp or Inkscape to make something and have a lot of fun doing it.
We are also encouraging people to send a short video about “how I use openSUSE” or “why I use openSUSE” and send it to email@example.com, so the videos can be edited and shared online. A five to 30 second clip is ideal.
