Hacking on systemd with OpenSUSE

I had recently had no other option but to hack on systemd :*( and found there wasn't any documentation on how to do this on OpenSUSE.

My first assumption that things...

I personally won't be at VMworld this year, and while I'll miss opportunities to see what VMware has...
