www.opensuse.org is the single most accessed page in the SUSE/openSUSE universe. With 1.5 million visits per month it generates 2.5 million page views and has around 500 people on the page at any given time. Yet it's one of the oldest, crufty pages we have!
It doesn't concentrate on what it should do: Tell people about the distro so they download it. It's design is 5 years old, it's not mobile, it's not accessible. There is absolutely no interactive, engaging content at all and the technology used goes as far as a shell script/cron to update dynamic content.
We are right now testing a patch to Janus that will hopefully give us the stability we were missing in http://jangouts.suse.de. As a consequence, it's reasonable to expect a wider usage of Jangouts inside the company. Thus, I want to share maintainership of Jangouts as much as possible. The more developers know how to fix errors and implement features, the better.
We already have a roadmap for the next two versions (0.4.0 and 0.5.0) but I don't want to spend my whole hackweek implementing those features in isolation. I would rather follow a workshop approach to welcome new contributors within the company (or outside, of course), so we get the stuff done and fix the single point of failure for the same price.
SUSE IT needs help from fellow geekos with release engineering skills to define the requirements, process, infrastructure, and tools for building an openSUSE-based distribution bundled with SUSE IT-supported application stack. The resulting OS build will be offered as a standard distribution for new SUSE employees in addition to the existing Operating System library.
