This year has been tough. But times of difficulties and challenges are also opportunities to reflect on where we come from, as a thriving global open-source community, and where we’re heading.
As dust settles, we look back and remember all the good moments for openSUSE – as well as the more difficult ones – we’ve been through together. And there sure are reasons to rejoice:


The point of this post is not to pat ourselves on the back, however. As a community we cannot achieve excellence without humility. There are still plenty of things to improve regarding both the technology and the people it serves. We all have something to learn from each other, and from the community as a whole; it is in this spirit that we would like to invite you to the “2020 End of the Year survey”. The survey has almost 40 questions cherry-picked to better understand your story with openSUSE, the issues you faced and your expectations for the future. Your insights will be invaluable for all of us, especially to help the new Board orientate its actions.
We wish you a beautiful end of the year and look forward to reading you. The survey starts today on survey.opensuse.org and runs until Jan. 2.
