...which I get the feeling you don't have any trust in the board
what it says it will be doing. If that's the case you might want to
a distrust motion against the board. We (the community) have some
experience with these.
If the Board's only reaction to negative feedback from openSUSE Members
is to stubbornly refuse to consider that feedback and instead escalate
the situation by saying "if you dont like it, run a distrust motion",
then I don't think the very concept of a Board is suitable for a
Project with openSUSE's Guiding Principles.
Thankfully, I know from the experience that the Board can operate with
more nuance than the binary choice you post here.
It is true, I currently have my doubts about the Board, justified by
the actions/inactions of the Board and the responses in this thread.
That said, I retain hope that some individuals in the Board will be
able to influence things so that the Board may act more consistently
with the Project's Guiding Principles in the future.
So I will not be baited into escalating my disapproval into a full
blown motion for your removal from the Board.
I think having my disapproval publicly stated is the only way available
for the Board to improve in the spirit of openness, quality,
transparency and respect which the Project is meant to operate under.
