Thanks! Btw, he is sending parts all around the world constantly. So don't be afraid of having it delivered to anywhere but Antarctica! 😜

I'm currently reading "The Unicorn Project" and just started "The Open Organization". I see huge overlaps in those two books and was immediately reminded of this quote from Satya Nadella.

The short conveniences vs the long-term good. We always chose the former.

In face of surveillance capitalism, we must and must change.

The @opensuse prototype could use some testing while it's in the Alpha build phase. The Jump prototype is testing a proof of concept about building the Leap distribution in an entirely different way.

The Open Build Service has a new notification center and it's really nice and useful! Thanks to everybody involved!
