SUSE Linux 10.0 is the first version to emerge from the OpenSUSE project. So far, the fruits of the Novell project—aside from the freely available SUSE Linux 10.0 release—have been better access to development builds of the distribution and a user-editable wiki.

The next step is opening up patch submission channels to the community and building a structure from which community members can participate in the software packaging efforts for the community.

This is the sort of structure that Ubuntu, through Debian, already enjoys, and the Ubuntu project is working to expand its community efforts through projects such as Rosetta, a Web-based application translation.
