Last month we started a new project called Contrib. It’s a shiny new community repository for openSUSE. In opposite of specialized repository (eg. Security:), Contrib is universal. It doesn’t matters if your package is a desktop application, or a network tool. Every type of package is welcome.
Today, we celebrated a package number 100 (gparted)! Thanks to all involved folks!
One hundred packages doesn’t look like a big repository, but consider we are active about a month and half and this is an important milestone for us. The bigger repository should be more attractive for end users, and a package maintainers too.
Contrib release cycle is same as Factory, but we want to help users to use it now. So Contrib is also available for 11.1. So just add the repository and start to use it! It help us!

If you maintain some interesting package in your home: project (or elsewhere), please follow instructions – New packages to Contrib and add your package to Contrib, so many users of openSUSE would use it!
