Default community distributions are running in the same issues for special architectures. Every Linux distribution has got mostly separate maintainers and hardware distributors are handling these communities really often disconnected. That has been identified also for the architecture s390x. Therefore, openSUSE, Fedora, Debian, SUSE, Canonical (Ubuntu) and Red Hat have established together with IBM a Linux Distributions Working Group for a better collaboration together and with the goal to achieve better support. In this presentation, you should receive an overview of a good collaboration between Linux distributions and what you can achieve together with such a Working Group.
