OpenSuse 10.2 release not covered

Strangely, the release of OpenSuse 10.2 on Dec. 7th was not covered in the news section of this forum. Nor was it covered on /.

Any explanation for this? After all, OpenSuse is #2 on distrowatch and probably among th e two most-used Linux distros in Europe. Given that often alpha-releases or release candidates of less important software get big coverage this is extremely odd.

What does everyone think about this?

I can't speak for slashdot, but there are at least 3 posts under Linux News here at LQ about the SuSE 10.2 release

Ugh, it seems I browsed the wrong forum here and missed the "syndicated news" subforum.
Still strange that there is nothing (if I searched right at least there!) at Slashdot.

It could be that discussions about Suse these days end up about speculation concerning the deal between Novell and Microsoft and how the Linux community is going to be affected. I have Suse 10 with no intention of ever using any more Suse distros in the future.
