Tumbleweed Snapshots Update Fonts, Perl, Python Packages

April 27th, 2017 by

openSUSE Tumbleweed snapshots this week gave many newer versions of Perl and Python packages, but several other packages were updated in the repositories including some open fonts.

Google and Adobe fonts were updated in snapshots 20170424 and 20170420 with google-croscore-fonts and adobe-sourcehansans-fonts being added to the repositories respectively.

Besides the google-croscore-fonts in snapshots 20170424, users can get a fix for the CD/DVD burning software Brasero, which provided a patch for Grub2 that fixes builds with the GNU Composite Compilers, and kdebase4-workspace offers a diff to fix an error reported by GCC7, which should be helpful as Tumbleweed works closer to adapt the newest GCC. The snapshot also delivered a patch for VirtualBox that will provide an eventual Application Programming Interface change for the release of Leap 42.3. (more…)

Google Summer of Code Update – Looking for Students

March 26th, 2008 by

The openSUSE Project is looking for students who are interested in contributing to the project via the Google Summer of Code. The application deadline for students is Monday, March 31st at 5 p.m. Pacific Daylight Time. (00:00 UTC, April 1, 2008)

If you’re not sure whether you’re qualified to join as a student, check the SoC FAQ — it spells out the eligibility very well.

After all students have submitted applications, the mentoring organization (in this case, the openSUSE project) will review and rank the proposals.

Mentors must be signed up by April 11, and students must be matched with mentors.

The entire timeline is available on the Google Summer of Code site.

The openSUSE Project’s ideas page is available on the openSUSE wiki. As you can see, we have a ton of good ideas. We’re open to more, though, so feel free to add one if it’s something you’re particularly interested in working on.

If you have any questions about the Summer of Code program, please contact Joe ‘Zonker’ Brockmeier or Christoph Thiel.
