How one can make informed decision to vote on any candidate who wasn't already on Board and don't have history of voting?
>From my point of view, to this day, members voted on other members basing on their contributions, opinions and what they like in candidates. No matter if candidate was running for first election, re-election or n-th time election. And I see this as a good thing because all candidates are equal in this model.
In my humble opinion, public Board voting will encourage hate of Board members which have other opinion than yours and feeling of betrayal when your trusted member (elected after informed decision) make a vote other than yours opinion.
We vote for members who we like mostly because they go with values we also appreciate. And I believe they stick to this values during their Board voting. If Board decides differently than I would then I assume that doing the same voting in community would bring roughly the same results, because those people are representing community and my opinion is opinion of minority.
Using example of football team sponsorship. I don't need to know who voted how. More people voted 'yes' than 'no'. It was looking weird to me, so explanation from Board (not individual Board members) was more than helpful to understand their intentions behind this decision and it was all I needed to cope with it. Now, Board members who shared their votes are exposed to unnecessary abuse because of different point of view. It's toxic and unhealthy.
P.S. I apologize for my English, it's not my native language (many times I need to correct from Beard to Board ;) )

Simply make the votes public. That's
all. Every vote taken by the openSUSE
Board -- on *every* issue --
should be made
public. That way, when the next election occurs, the
openSUSE membership can make an informed
decision on who to elect (or
best represent us.
