We get a chance to sit down with Martin Lasarsch (evangelist for openSUSE) and get an overview of what is in openSUSE 10.3. We also get a chance to sit down and talk to no fewer than 10 people who help bring the openSUSE release to you. They give us an idea of what goes into a release of openSUSE and give us some insight into things like how the numbering of our releases work.
