Hello all ,

Thanks Robert for the update. Ping anytime (one of us) in case you need
some help with the tasks.

About the shops : My experience with Myntra was not good, the product
described is not exactly (100%) what they send.It differs in respect to
quality and design .Also I am not sure if country specific stores will
benefit or feasible.I guess Robert can answer that.Else , sounds good to
me. *Spreadshirt +1
I'd focus first on the existing spreadshirt shop and enhance here and wouldn't
add any new shops for regions spreadshirt isn't shipping to. Each additional
shop adds work.

+1 . And how do you plan to enhance ? I feel that , we should upload/create few more designs . In other words , give users/public more options to choose from . I find the current state is really limited . Also we can add lot many other stuffs like Mugs , stickers , etc .

In designs (for Sweatshirts and T-shirts)- we already have some good logo's . Things which we actually require are some real good slogans.Which would make the users feel good , wearing them- that said it should make them feel geeky and show the openSUSE (Gecko) love.

Something like: Geek by nature , Linux by choice - Re-phrase -->> Geek by nature , openSUSE by choice.
The above is just an example :) .

Also we need to investigate more on the taste of the openSUSE lovers. I mean how or what actually they want to show their love towards openSUSE (through our shop-this , we need to figure out) . I hope I made myself clear ...

What we do currently with spreadshirt is that we've chosen some items, gave
them an openSUSE design and set our price tag.
Our price tag, what dose this mean ?
Spreadshirt sell their stuff at their price. Let's take a something which
would cost 15 €/$ per unit. We add normally 1 or 2 €/$ and sell it then for
more. This difference (1 or 2 €/$) then goes into our pockets. This "our
pockets" is currently Novell as openSUSE isn't yet a legal entity. With an
openSUSE Foundation we could redirect this income to the Foundation. And to
give you a better picture - we're not talking about a high sales rate. So we
sell with the two shops 30 items a month we have a good month.

Nice! And more options make ---> MORE SALE ;)

Any other ideas are welcome .. :)

Cheers !
