I'd be happy to establish and run a "Friends of openSUSE Verein" here in
Switzerland, but as long as there is no openSUSE entity to receive the
sponsoring, it would be pointless.


opensuse already have sponsors

not speaking of SUSE :-)

Long time ago, when the Foundation was discussed it was abandoned because we couldn't grant the foundation could protect the openSUSE trade mark, but now it's not question of this.

The association I mean of wouldn't have any property on openSUSE. Depending of the amount of money collected, it could promote openSUSE on various ways (printed doc in various languages, sponsoring boots...), hiring a developer being one of the most expensive.

We could begin with a small membership fee, just to see if this project is popular.

The association should probably involve in his board most (all?) the openSUSE board to make people trust it.

Right now it's only an idea.

what do the readers of this thread think of it? Is it simply worth discussing? if yes we have to open an other thread on project-
