It's official: the openSUSE project Guiding Principles
] are now in force. The Guiding
Principles are a framework for the project and give everyone a clear view of
who we are, what we stand for, what the project wants and how it works. The
Guiding Principles document was created by the openSUSE community and is
embraced by Novell - the founder and largest sponsor of the openSUSE project.
This important document will help ensure the success and continued progress
of the project. Along with the Guiding Principles, we are also launching the
openSUSE Board to offer a central point of contact to the community and make
community participation in project governance easier. The openSUSE Board
] consists of both external community members
and community members employed by Novell.
We encourage all to support the Guiding Principles at

We want to especially thank all contributors to the Guiding Principles, and
last but not least, all community members who make the openSUSE project such
Have a lot of fun!
