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.

It was a fun interview. Excellent job managing 15 people!

I do think though that it would be nice to have code names for openSUSE releases. Take, for example, a new release of GroupWise – Bonsai. I’m not sure if it’s going to be GroupWise 7.5 or 8.0, but GroupWise Bonsai release sounds better, plus I can easy associate new features with this particular version. I know that interface is improved, I know that it would have notification feature plus more, plus more….

The same could work for the openSUSE. We should have a road map with some code names. Maybe community could provide some input. I think it should be something positive, fun and reassuring.

Frequently, openSUSE uses green color in its distribution so let’s come up with slogans for a new release. Something like: It’s greener on the other side! Come visit and see it for yourself.
