The openSUSE developers have also started changing their development policies, to make it easier for developers outside of Novell to contribute. Previously, all code contributions required approval by a Novell developer. To enable the changes, the openSUSE Factory will be split into smaller projects, such as a GNOME factory and a Kernel factory. These components will be managed as individual projects with their own responsibilities. At the end of June, the openSUSE developers released the third milestone in the development of openSUSE 11.2, code named Fichte. A preliminary version of the fourth milestone is expected to be available on the 31st of July and the final release is scheduled for November.

At the end of June, the Mandriva developers released the first alpha of Mandriva Linux 2010. According to the developers, the main focus of the 2010 release, apart from including all of the previous security and bug fixes, is to improve the user experience for daily tasks. The final release of Mandriva 2010 is expected to be available on the 21st of October, 2009."
