$SUBJECT, someone should share the memo with Stefan...
He apparently feels a sole gatekeeper of a project that has 74

Good luck taking on CentOS with this attitude, EDA space is not where
openSUSE can shine if community members act like they need to protect
their tiny projects, I have requested a separate OBS project for ASIC

The facepalm is intended for a person on a BCC... 🤦♂️
Question: What can SUSE help you with to grow the community? Not to
place roadblocks in my way... I'd Stefan is such a roadblock, so
perhaps board@ can start removing community roadblocks also, I am not
facing any roadblocks from SUSE at this point. He rejected a valid
version update of a package which is not even linked to Factory or any
upstream, yet provided 0 specific issues with the request...

Speed of resolution is not really a good argument. One of the reasons
the support list was created (a Board initiative btw) was to move
support questions away from the factory list. I personally doubt if it
has worked, and you also seem to prefer seeking support on the factory

Done :-) (well, a new thread, sorry)

I think the idea is good, but because TW is a main openSUSE distro, I
would not expect the majority of TW users to be hanging out on the

I'm sure we can all agree on that, but does that make it alright to go
off-topic on the factory list which is specifically not for support?

Just another openSUSE user in favour of merging the support list back
into the users list.

As the openSUSE Board election is drawing closer, with the ballots
opening on December 15 already, we want to invite the openSUSE community
to a "meet-and-greet" and QA live session with the candidates.
In the past weeks there have been passionate discussions on the election
and candidates, and we felt we had to answer the community's interest
with a proper setting.
In this video call the candidates will introduces themselves, present
their openSUSE board election platforms and answer questions. While this
might sound a bit formal we really want to keep it very informal and
relaxed for everyone. The goal is to give the community a better picture
of the candidates so they can decide whom to vote for.
## Time and date
Saturday, 2020-12-19 at 13:00 UTC
We tried to accommodate as many time zones as possible. We chose
Saturday to give people a chance to take part who are working during the
weekdays. Please find your local time accordingly here:
We will gather at this Jitsi room:
The session will be recorded for anyone not being able to take part.
Furthermore we're trying to make a live stream on Youtube possible as
well to cover regions not that well connected to meet-o-o.
Please keep that in mind so if you don't want to be recorded it's better
to leave your webcam turned off.
Adrien Glauser and Vinzenz Vietzke will be moderating the whole event
together to make sure no questions get lost unanswered.
## Collecting Questions
As mentioned there will be lots of time for questions and discussions.
We will try to monitor the chat for questions as they pop up. But if you
already have questions to one or more candidates in mind please email
them in advance: vinzv(a)opensuse.org
That makes planning much easier for us.
If there a general questions on the event feel free to get in touch.
We're looking forward to a productive and healthy session!
P.S. This email is also available on news-o-o as article. So if you want
to share the news maybe take that:
I'd like to apologize for the typos and bugs spoiling the recently
released "End of the Year 2020 survey". I alone am responsible for them,
as the non-volunteer part of me was busy with urgent things that
prevented me from honoring our "cooperative time window" for doing the
I am hopeful we will be able to iron things out in the next few hours. I
will get back to you when things are back to normal.
Thanks for your patience!
