SUSE to Release SLE Sources to openSUSE Project

As announced by Richard Brown, openSUSE Board Chairman, SUSE is preparing to release a large portion of its SUSE Linux Enterprise sources to openSUSE Project. Here’s the first paragraph from the announcement on the openSUSE Project mailing list:

SUSE is preparing to pro-actively release a significant portion of the SUSE Linux Enterprise source code, including a regular stream of maintenance updates, to the openSUSE Project.

I’m really excited about this change and I think it will benefit both SUSE and openSUSE in both the short and long terms.

The openSUSE Conference is being held starting May 1 and more information will be available then. I’ll post the video to Richard’s talk when it is posted.

UPDATE: Here is a link to the slides used for the presentation this morning. I’ll have a later post with the slides and video embedded when it is available.
