Henne, thanks a lot for your work all those years, highly appreciated!
Regarding the ml admin, we can split the work into two parts, the social and
the technical part.
So a "social ml admin" can be pretty much everyone, without even any technical
Regarding the "technical ml admin", I had a discussion about it today with my
team, and it seems the need to be a SUSE employee is not needed any more. There
are plenty of parts that are public, there are parts that can become public,
and there are parts that will need to remain private. Thus, if a non-SUSE
employee wants to help on this, is more than welcome and we'll be willing to
collaborate to make more parts of this service public.
