Writing, translating, and publishing
Since openSUSE 12.2 the release notes document is part of the openSUSE documentation SVN at http://svn.opensuse.org/svn/opensuse-doc/trunk/release-notes/opensuse/; formerly we used the SVN at http://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/opensuse/trunk/documentation/release-notes-opensuse/ . RELEASE-NOTES-openSUSE.xml is the English master document. We now use the official DocBook style sheets for producing output formats; formerly we used yast.xsl and html.xsl for YaST and HTML output. If you want to help with writing release notes snippets, create draft snippets in Bugzilla using the "Release Notes" category, and consider to apply for SVN write access.
The Localization teams translate the release notes in the suse-i18n SVN.
We are publishing the release notes as a regular software package. The name of this package is release-notes-openSUSE.
