"This month we talk with Chris Schlaeger, senior manager of
development with SuSE. Mr. Schlaeger is responsible for the
coordination of SuSE's product development process. This includes
developments like YaST/Sax as well as maintenance of the 2400 open
source packages. He also develops code for the K Desktop
Environment in his spare time."
"Q: ...What is SuSE's Linux Labs program, and
how has it influenced development?"
"A:SuSE has quite a number of developers of
Open Source projects on their payroll. The projects include the
Linux kernel, ISDN, ALSA, glibc, XF86, KDE and many others. These
developers simply continue the work on their project and don't have
to worry about paying their rent. That way we have secured the
development of several projects that might have been discontinued
due to lack of time of the developers after graduating."
