No, you vote twice: once for candidates that are not Novell employeesso two lists, one filled by Novell and the other by volunteers.
and once for candidates that are Novell employees. So you wouldn't look
at the 11th on the list.
Seconded, though why should Novell put up more than 2 candidates for
their 2 places? In which case, 2 separate votes become irrelevant.
I agree, and it's a good thing that Novell does *not* 'put up' these 2
I appreciate that they (Novell) want to retain control of a project that
they largely fund - this is not unreasonable - but if it turns out that
the board voting is consistently split along Novell / Community lines I
fear the Community members are unlikely to remain there very long.
The 2 Novell Employees you are referring to will not be elected by
Novell, but by the openSUSE Community. There is a 5th member that
will be selected by Novell but that's a different story and does not
call for a discussion in this thread.
For electing the two Community members :
Anyone who wants to be on the board should apply for it. It should not- with their prior consent -
matter if you are working for Novell or not, but it should be made clear
in the 'application'.
Also, anyone can nominate anyone *else* as to be a board member.
It should then be made clear if that's a community member or a Novell
I would not expect Novell employees to stand unless selected by their
employer, so I don't think this is likely to be very relevant.
The 2 positions open for Novell Employees will be elected by the
openSUSE Community so it's very relevant.
I'm also assuming that the Chair is one of the 2 Novell placings, with a
casting vote in the event of ties.
No, it is not. The 5th member is the 'Novell placing'.
 It is still to be decided who can vote but I chose to call it the
'openSUSE Community' in this mail to make it clear that it has nothing
much to do with Novell.
