[opensuse-project] Does openSUSE have an opinion of "Linux capabilities"?

All,

I just read
http://www.h-online.com/security/news/item/Expert-Linux-capabilities-don-t-add-security-1164658.html

And it left me wondering if openSUSE has a plan related to
capabilities. Apparently some of the distros are moving to it rapidly
in an effort to eliminate SUID programs, but there may be security
holes in the new concept too, so it's pretty up in the air.

And my other question is where do project level design concepts like
this get discussed?

Thanks
Greg
