The greatest part of our distribution is developed by many individual Open Source developers and we do the integration and packaging of their great software. But there is also a good amount of software developed by SUSE developers as Open Source (under the GPL). One such area is systems management and installation. The following three components have now opened up their internal mailing lists:

  • YaST is the installation and configuration tool for SuSE Linux. It is popular for its easy use and attractive interface and the capability to customize your system quickly during or after the installation. To learn more about YaST see https://en.opensuse.org/YaST. YaST has been developed by SUSE for several years and is now under the GPL.
  • libzypp is the integration of SUSE’s yast2 Package manager and Ximian’s libredcarpet. At Novell two solutions before were used – Red Carpet and YaST package manager. To learn more about libzypp see https://en.opensuse.org/Libzypp.
  • LiMaL (Linux Management Library) provides a system library style, object oriented way of access to the operating system. To learn more about LiMaL see http://forge.novell.com/modules/xfmod/project/?limal.

Jiri announced the opening of the internal mailinglists today with an email on the opensuse-announce mailinglist. Besides the mailinglists where all communication about these projects should happen, we are soon moving our internal subversion repositories for these projects to the public so that everybody can follow the code changes and contribute. Libzypp is the first planned repo to move to our new public server, the move is planned in the next two weeks.
