openSUSE Rethinking Developmental Model, 12.2 Delayed

Filed under
SUSE

Last week when openSUSE 12.2 Beta 1 was released, it was late and following a canceled Milestone 4. In fact, the whole cycle had been thrown off-schedule and the remaining releases will be delayed as well. In a post to the openSUSE factory mailing list today, Stephan Kulow said their developmental model is broken; a post characterized by Jos Poortvliet as "a wakeup-call for openSUSE."

The underlying issue in factory seems to stem from a rapidly expanding contributor base and unmaintained packages. Too many packages are being allowed to remain broken for an unacceptable amount of time. The build server continues to act up and upgrading to GCC 4.7 is "still creating big pains."
