your point. We should name a team like this "openSUSE small business team".
The double meaning of SMB isn't bad at all, caused by the relevance of the Server-Message-Block protocol for our invis-server project,

What do people think about this?
Might be a poor acronym choice: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SMB https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Server_Message_Block "In computer networking, Server Message Block (SMB), one version of which was also known as Common Internet File System (CIFS, /ˈsɪfs/)"
For those who are not a native English speaker, SMB is widely understood to small and medium business in the business world.
I rarely hear SMB, but occasionally SME. When I first read $SUBJ, I did not immediately think small-to-medium sized business (KMU) - I thought "surface mount <something>", but then quickly realized I was thinking SMD. I think it might be better to avoid the TLA and say "openSUSE Small Business Edition" for instance.
