Grazer Linuxtage (Graz, Austria)

April 5 - April 6

Grazer Linuxtage is a conference taking place annually in Graz on Apirl 5-6. Grazer Linuxtage is organized by volunteers and offers attendees the opportunity to learn more about open source software and open source hardware.

Open Mainframe Project Ambassador Sarah-Julia Kriesch, IT consultant for Accenture, will be on-site on Saturday, April 6 at 10-10:45 am (Europe time) to present and overview of the Linux Distribution Working Group and how the different distributions collaborate.

openSUSE, Fedora and Debian have joined forces with an IBM representative as the Linux Distributions Working Group in the Open Mainframe Project with the aim of maintaining the respective mainframe (s390x) ports together and ultimately providing all Linux distributions with the corresponding patches and can integrate extensions. At first this idea was viewed with some surprise from outside, but at community level we are an “international” Linux community consisting of different Linux distributions. In the meantime, SUSE, Canonical (Ubuntu), AlmaLinux and Rocky Linux have also joined. In the same way, they started to develop the tooling for automatic tests together with openQA.

This lecture, given in German, will present the advantages of joint collaboration on Linux distributions with different communities and, using the example of the Linux Distributions Working Group, show how we can develop together so that everyone has an advantage in the end.
