Other than that we should follow the proven guideline of "those who do the work decide", and let actions speak. I don't see the need to make things more complicated here.
Well, you know my thoughts on that now - the "those who do the work decide" rule works fine for 40-year-old-white-German-males.
I can't see what you mean with that. Moreover I find the phrase not appropiate, but lets leave that aside. The "those who do decide" rule is one of the fundaments of communities. We can and will not let that go.
It's a huge barrier for anyone who doesn't regularly go to meetings & talks to openSUSE people, learning 'how things work'.
Is that a request for more documenting of what is done? I agree, thats needed. However I wonder if the Trademark Guideline is the right place to outline stuff that is a) sometimes defined by people who do it and b) possibly not know yet. IMO the guidelines should give a frame in which we operate but should not try to rule out everything as that takes away free space, creativity and fun. If questions arise we again look at the guidelines and decide. The fact that it can happen that we have to discuss again shouldn't be considered as downside but as development of the project.
