openSUSE 12.2 Release Publicity: Call for Contributions

Agustin, Ismael and Christopher working around a table on openSUSE release PRAs we enter the final straight towards the release of openSUSE 12.2, the openSUSE Team is busy preparing the release publicity. And this is where you, the openSUSE community come in. There are lots of ways you can help us share the workload. If you want to take on one of these jobs, mail the opensuse-project list to announce your contribution.

We need a plan for announcing the 12.2 release on social media.  If you’re a social animal, volunteer to lead this for 12.2 on the Project list.

Look at ten bugs and everyone can perceive a pattern close the duplicates, and or spot the simi

Upgrade Instructions

The Support Database article on upgrading between openSUSE versions was last updated for openSUSE 11.4!  This would be easy to update, but keep in mind that for 12.2 the online update repositories have been split between Free and proprietary software, so both need to be added.
