The openSUSE Project is a community project to create, promote, improve and document the openSUSE Linux distribution.[1]


The openSUSE Project develops Free Software and tools and has two main Linux distribution named openSUSE Leap and openSUSE Tumbleweed. The project is sponsored by a number of companies and individuals, most notably SUSE, AMD, B1 Systems, Heinlein Support and IP Exchange.[2]


The openSUSE Project develops the openSUSE Linux distribution as well as a large number of tools around building Linux distributions like the Open Build Service, KIWI, YaST, openQA, Snapper, Machinery, Portus and more.


The project is controlled by its community and relies on the contributions of individuals, working as testers, writers, translators, usability experts, artists and developers. The project embraces a wide variety of technology, people with different levels of expertise, speaking different languages and having different cultural backgrounds. [3]

There is an openSUSE Board which is responsible to lead the overall project.
