Well, even if the Members are automatically given right to vote for
every elections, are there any rational explanations why we should
always limit voters only to Members ?

There are various reasons. Here's one: because we are 99% sure they are
real people (since their application was checked). Anybody can create 10
accounts on user.opensuse.org and approve 10 times the guiding
principles.

Good point.

(and generally speaking, it's really much much simpler than considering
any other group)

Yes and no. Actually Marko was working on it to have a general voting, but i
wanted to have this election fast (it was already way over time) (and no,
it's not Markos fault). So we decided to go on and let only the members vote.

I guess there are elections where also non members should be able to vote. I
think it's ok on this one because probably mostley members will be
a "spokesperson" or have to deal with them.
