I am sure you understand that with the exception of
the CEO and similarily
ranked officers no company will provide lists or other details of people
leaving, be it voluntary or otherwise. Not the least since this would run
afoul of data protection regulations.
I don't understand how anybody can claim to want to build a community, and
then be completely silent, when major events affecting the community greatly
like these firings occur.
I don't remember seing any official communication about this whatsoever,
except some executive level bullshit in the press - but nothing at all
addressing the concerns of the openSUSE community.
A list of names would probably also be against the interests of the directly
affected peopIe, but I'm pretty sure it would have been possible for someone
to release some information to the openSUSE community explaining what goes on,
why, how it affects (different parts of) openSUSE short and long term etc.,
without Novell getting in too much legal trouble because of it.
