FOSDEM: Coping with wide impact changes in a distribution

Some of us are quite closely monitor changes (beta to beta) and are active in the openSUSE-factory and openSUSE-packaging MLs discussions and IRC. They use it as an always up-to-date development and testing platform. For another, who make update after the official release only, this presentation is VERY recommended.
