you speak of the openSUSE developers as if they all work for some big
company and the company has said: Don’t work on Raspberry Pi. or
maybe you hope they said: We will begin working on Raspberry Pi in
November and have it on the street in one year!
but the fact is that by and large the workers do what they wanna
do…yes, they come together as a group and set goals then try to
work together to meet their goals…
hmmmm…about three years ago they spent a LOT of time talking about
their goals, and one of them was to NOT get into the mobile device
business…about six or 12 months after that huge decision some of
the really interested ones started working on supporting Arm…so!!

there is no Big Boss Man with a play book in his back pocket…but,
there are several mail lists, why don’t you read through the history
of how the Arm development came about…here are over 3,000 hits:
and then you might join and post to that list (or maybe
opensuse-project mail list) and ask your question… but do not be
surprised if the answer is similar to mine: Since our hands are busy
doing what we want to do, and you want us to do what you want us to
do, how many people are you bringing to help you do what you want to do??

have you not discovered Google yet? here are almost 4000 hits (the
first four or five are ads to ignore):

i’m not upset and hope you didn’t read that into what i wrote…i WAS
hoping you wanted to put together a team of developers and lead the
and as far as “I do not have the skill or knowledge or even an idea
of where to start to produce OpenSuse for Raspberry Pi.” there would
be a need to form a team of developers, documentation writers,
translators, graphic artist, marketing gurus, packagers, testers, etc
etc etc etc…BIG team, lots on hands needed…just get that
organized and get’er done!
otherwise, maybe it will look like ‘they’ are quietly ignoring while
in fact there is already something to test (check out that Arm
archive, where i see: “I just download the latest version for the
Raspberry Pi.” dated 10 Apr 2013 at
and, what did you learn when you jumped on the IRC?
