openSUSE 10.3 Goldmaster...
and myself at our desks waiting for the DVD9s to burn before we can send them to the fab for producing.
After Coolo released openSUSE 10.3 this morning (he started testing at 6am), we did the final tests. I concentrated on the bootloader. This time an update from 10.2 did not try to boot from my non-existing floppy but used the right default - yeah!
In the evening Coolo and Christoph found a package that shouldn't be on the media, so we removed it and moved some packages from the second DVD9 to the first DVD so that all packages in the patterns are on the first DVD.
We have mastered now the media and will now prepare our staging server and then give the mirrors some GBs to download and distribute. The official launch of openSUSE 10.3 will be the 4th of October, a few days later you will find the box product in the shops as well. The box product will contain 2 DVD9 - each nearly 7 GB of RPMs. The downloadable installation media are a 1 CD GNOME, a 1 CD KDE and a 4 GB DVD5 - and in addition both a GNOME and a KDE LiveCD.
We're currently hanging around at the #opensuse-project irc channel on freenode. I've just read the tuxmachines review and heard a lot of praise on the irc channel about 10.3. Thanks to everybody that made 10.3 that good!
