Neal mentions that actions are already taken to get more
essential codecs into openSUSE
Brief mention of nvidia, NO GO either. Requires more follow up, to check what
we can and cannot do.
Neal mentions how Fedora deals with Flatpaks could work for oS, Board
discusses flatpak situation briefly.
** Board election rules
Simon brings to the table that we should review these. And possibly fill some
gaps in there. Gerald adds that change can be made by a vote by the board or
members. Some uncontested changes like covering Emeritus Member status might
be candidates for the former; still community should always be informed.
Simon: We as openSUSE sponsor events, Doug consults the board when in doubt.
