Somehow I feel that ~90% of the worth of what we ship in the openSUSE
distribution comes from upstream code
which sort of makes all those many upstream developers
contributors to openSUSE, even without them knowing it.

(which IMHO is an awful concept from sales people)
We should tell the people
why we are good
not why we are better (than X).
Let's tell the world, that we do this because it is easy and fun to
contribute to openSUSE, even though it might also be fun with
