Heroes Team members are volunteers helping the project with all system administration related tasks. It consists of people with skills ranging from generic Administrators over to Storage and Network experts. The team also welcomes new volunteers who want to start learning new skills.

In short: the team helps the openSUSE community make their ideas and dreams come true.

Check out videos of past openSUSE Conferences where we give more details about the Team and the openSUSE infrastructure and services: oSC13 oSC15 oSC16 oSC17


As team we communicate over a lot of channels. Mostly mailing list and IRC.
