Sascha, I think the problem is not the topic itself but the way things are treated. As Satoru, I really welcome your commitment but decisions should be taken by all persons involved. E.g. I have noticed that you and FunkyPenguin have been declared as Ambassador Leads (or declared yourselves). This is something that should be discussed on the list, first.
Best Regards Marcus
I would like to second what Marcus has said here. Sascha I as I'm sure everyone else is not criticising your commitment or enthusiasm to the project, but there does seem to be a lack of general consensus. This is the first that I have heard of me becoming an Ambassador Lead; actually I never even knew there was such a thing. If someone is going to take up any form of position they should either apply or be asked if they would like the position.
At present my plate is very full not just with the usual day to day work and family dealings, but also a fair amount of other openSUSE related things. With all of these commitments I'm not sure how effective I would be at being a lead of any team.
I appreciate that sometimes the process can slow things down, but we are not necessarily going through corporate Novell processes but effectively creating our own. Personally I would like to see the heads/leads of teams especially in the marketing department chosen or at least nominated by the Board.
I am *NOT* trying to take anyone's thunder or saying that people's contributions are not welcome, far from it. What I am trying to say is let's do it properly and have an involved discussion and consensus by all about who and what is needed.
