Where we come from

  • The openSUSE Testing Core team is composed of members from around the globe that want to contribute in improving the openSUSE operating system.

How we perform our jobs

  • We coordinate our work during the regular meetings. For more details see the meeting page.

What skills we posess

  • We are able to create valid bug reports that will help developers to fix problems found in early development stages of openSUSE and in the stable version.


  • The openSUSE Testing Core team wants to identify bugs as early as possible in the development cycle to give developers time to find a solution and to give less technical testers a better user-experience.
  • The openSUSE Testing Core team tries to identify bugs in the stable version of openSUSE and passes the information down to the developers in order for them to create a proper fix.

Team Statement

  • Make openSUSE a reliable platform for both users and developers.
