I'm not arguing against what you wrote but it just does not matter
here.
We are talking about openSUSE Leap and not about SUSE LINUX
Enterprise.

If Leap is SUSE controlled it should be named SUSE Leap or SUSE
CentOS
or whatnot leaving openSUSE out.

Well said.
For the record, I disagree with some of Johns sentiment. and feel it is
not consistant with the official opinion of SUSE.

openSUSE Leap should remain named openSUSE Leap or whatever the
community wishes to call it.

The community is the only entity that controls what is inside Leap,
with the obvious caveat that SUSE is part of that community also.

And in the event of various parts of the community having conflicts, we
have the Board, a community-appointed body, for dealing with them.

The Board has strict rules preventing any corporation (including SUSE)
having too many seats on that body, even if the community voted for it.

Or in other words - sure, Leap will default to what is in SLE, but if
people disagree with that, the door is wide open for contributing &
collaborating to shift Leap to suit what the community, as a whole,
wishes.

Having worked for SUSE, have been running openSUSE Evergreen,
maintaining almost all Mozilla stuff in SUSE/openSUSE since almost 20
years, working for an OSS company you do not need to tell me that
story.

Since this thread is kind of off-topic and probably even not very
efficient because to abstract I'll shout again directly the next time
I see that sort of misalignment.

Thanks, that's how I'll deal with any similar misalignments myself.

Regards,
