Hello Jos,

it in an official Mailinglist, and so i'm writng to you official.

Sorry if I did something wrong, PM, that's Product Marketing? Aren't the
people who work on openSUSE marketing on this list? Product Management? Do we
have that?

But for something like the weekly news, I think it might make sense
for the team doing it to think about what their purpose is - yes,
informing the community. But those part of it or very close most
likely do follow the planet. The weekly news is most likely read by
users further away from the project and journalists and such - who
don't have to be bothered by infighting or bad news ;-)

As Satoru has written, actually our Team are four People. 2 of them are
writing just two Parts of the openSUSE Weekly News. Satoru and I
collecting Article for the Rest. And Satoru does also the Proofreading
Desk. On this place: Thanks a lot, Satoru. The Weekly News can't be
without you.
In my Case i have many to do outside the openSUSE Project. So i must
decide, if i read Mail or RSS News, in a short time, which Article is
interesting. And if its interesting then we try to find out which is the
best place. I think this is the same as by Satoru. ATM we're an our

Which is too bad - after all, as was said during the conference by Henne - we
all read the planet. I think most if not all people on this list do. Unless
the process of selecting is complicated (no idea how you do that) it should be
someting pretty much everyone can do - maybe we should make a bit more noise
about the fact that our Weekly News needs help!

On the other hand, I still have to find the first team in openSUSE (or
anywhere else) which is OVER staffed :D

To clarify: We don't people who say: "This must be changed". We need
People who doing this. So i'm happy to read between your lines, that you
would give up a assignment, and join the Team.
As little Proposal: Please keep in mind, that we are an international
Community. And you have offended my japanese Mate. Please read a book
about international native customs and native practices.

I am very much sorry about that. I certainly did not intend to do that and
will try to be more careful next time! Haven't I said before that I'm dutch
and thus bound to be rude? Sorry for that!

So i think, that we can do many more in marketing openSUSE.

And change the world and have more ponies and ... have fun :D
