Moves to include women, or any other perceived minority, into the
mainstream is always dicey, with affirmative action more often than
not being considered as reverse discrimination. This program by GNOME
[1][2], for example preferentially offers women paid internships,
because they are women.

And openSUSE-Women was created to make openSUSE more inclusive and
gender-neutral already, wasn't it? Is there really scope for another
body/sub-organisation for the same apparent purpose?

P.S. I feel there is too much of cross posting between the marketing
and ambassador lists. Could there not be a clear demarcation of the
lists' scope? just asking.
