> After six years on the openSUSE Board and five as its Chairperson, I have decided to step down as Chair of the openSUSE Board effective today, August 19.
Richard, thank you so much for everything you've done for the openSUSE project(s), the community, the people (incl. sense of humour and really stretched jokes like well the... brexit one :)), and for SUSE too.
You'll be deeply missed in your chair role, even though still involved and contributing from a variety of angles.
> Gerald has been a regular source of advice & support during my tenure as Chairperson. In particular, I will always remember my first visit to FOSDEM as openSUSE Chair.
Let's see how Gerald will dress up now, for his first live appearance as chair :)
Really happy and excited that Gerald has accepted the challenge and together with the board, the community and SUSE folks, looking forward to keeping the good collaboration between openSUSE and SUSE and also to bringing improvements as much as we can.
