The openSUSE community is pleased to announce that it will have short sessions aimed at encouraging people on how to contribute to the project.

A group of volunteers will present short 15-minute sessions that are streamed and/or recorded on openSUSE’s YouTube channel that are aimed at teaching people about packaging, using the Open Build Service, creating tests for openQA and other development areas.

The first session about “Basic use of OBS/osc using a version bump as an example” is set to begin tomorrow, on Feb. 15 at 21:00 UTC.

Another talk, “Packaging Guidelines (Patch Policies) and Submission of New Packages”, is scheduled for Feb. 27 at 16:00 UTC.

More sessions are expected to be scheduled for future dates.

The sessions are listed on the openSUSE Calendar; look for the Contribution Workshop sessions marked in orange.

Those who are interested in presenting should fill in the blank area for future sessions listed in the email about the events.

Giving a session is a great way to give back to the community and provides opportunities to teach others skills and knowledge about open-source development.

    Great, now how about we get zypper up to the speed and standard of otger package managers (parallel downloads and just being faster in general, like dnf5, or just introduce a way to make dnf5 an option fot Tumbleweed) to take it to the place it needs to be? OpenSUSE Tumbleweed is great. When Matt from The Linux Cast said Tumbleweed is amazing, I believed him. When he said zypper was too slow, my reaction was “surely it’s not that bad, right?”. Wrong. It is SUPER slow. Can we get a way to set up dnf5 on it? Thank you.

      Just install dnf5 from the repositories and you’re good to go.

        Wait, so installing dnf from the repos gives us dnf5? I had it!!! Whatever, I’m on NixOS now and I’m quite happy with it but I’ll certainly keep that in mind if I ever decide to try Tumbleweed again.

          Yup, it’s as simple as that 🙂. That’s the beauty of Linux. If something doesn’t suit you, you have so many alternatives that you can try out.

            Well, here I am reading this message as I find myself yet again frustrated at NixOS for beng so different and I’m looking towards Tumbleweed, thinking, “Maybe”
