This is not just a statement, it's the official position of Novell, Inc.
There is now openSUSE and the community can influence some things up to
a certain degree, but decisions like this one are (and should be, IMHO)
outside the scope of what the community can influence because the impact
is just too severe that the community can make an adequate decision.

Novell could be aware that any non accepted decision could split the community and drop the work Novell already do.

But I don't think this is the case here, _this_ decision looks very honest and respectfull of the hole Linux community.

_Any_ application (including the Kernel) is in fact owned by his developpers. Anybody can fork and make a new Kernel branch (can they?) but having the ressources to do so seems unlikely, if ever anybody had the will to do so.

I also think this decision have been very difficult to do for the kernel guys and so must be accepted, as difficult as it can be.
