Joining the OpenSUSE team(from Canada)?

I’ve been using OpenSUSE for a little over 2 years, and have been making little customization for my own use.

I am a graduate student in particle physics field, and I am a little bit curious what the process may be in terms of joining the OpenSUSE team and contribute in developing. I tried looking at the ambassador, but I couldn’t really find an e-mail address I could contact.

Could someone point me in the right direction please?

Welcome. Here’s some links:

And, you could pop this question on the factory mailing list. Send an email to

Hi Knurpht,

thank you for the links, but I’ve already been to these links. I’m more of looking for potentially setting up a repository. Also, it would be great if I could find a documentation in regards to how to properly packing everything into YAST.

Basically, it would be great if I could find a contact person who has been through this already. I will look into sending in the e-mail at a later date, since I am currently very busy at CERN.

This is OBS ( the open build service, part of the openSUSE Project ) . You can use the same credentials.
And, the opensuse-factory ML is the place to look for some mentoring.
