I am a bit busy because we are having our Software Freedom Day next Saturday.
Questions to be asked:
- How do the other distros get funded?
There's a little bit of info about Debian funding here: http://www.debian.org/sitemap
- What do we tell our members?
At this point, my suggestion is "wait and see". It's tempting to fire off emails asking for information, but I figure that the people who are dealing with the business end of all this will probably have enough to do right now and don't need more emails from me!
I trust the board (and no doubt other senior representatives) will pass on information as soon as they know anything.
- Helen is right, what about our pals at Novell?
Again, it's wait and see. Takeovers and sales don't always mean losses: sometimes it's an opportunity for growth. Let's stay positive at this point.
Whatever happens, openSUSE wil keep moving forward. At Software Freedom Day, the best thing is to say that we have a strong community and committed developers and contributors, which we do. Most importantly we have a great distribution. We're all still here, developing, patching, packaging, promoting, supporting.
Have fun on your Software Freedom Day.!
Best wishes, Jimmy President nui.fr
