You will find that the question at hand fits quite precisely within

If opensuse becomes no good for me, it is a very technical problem related to opensuse that I must discuss!

I wish to discuss, what technical aspects of my current use of openSUSE will be affected by the absence or degradation of openSUSE, and how they may be met elsewhere if necessary, and what if any aspects are not well duplicated anywhere else.

For instance, I currently use the network installer a lot, loaded via pxe and usb thumb drive most often. I have grown fairly comfortable with all of the linuxrc boot commandline options to make the opensuse net install image do things I want. Should opensuse become unsuitable, what are the equivalent procedures for some other distro, and what other distro comes closest in features and procedures, and/or what would it take to fork and support opensuse elsewhere? Is that suitably technical?

Basically every detail of my use of opensuse is a technical detail with some considerable thought, testing, experience, and documentation for my co-workers and my future self behind it. Every one of those technical details needs to be examined for portability as a result of this news, even though there is no real news yet. The specter alone is already sufficient justification for taking a look over your operation and trying to identify potential problems.

Shut up with the shutting up!
