Dear board: I'm looking for more than the current standard "bye bye" Emails here.
I second that. I think we are owed an explanation.
Before we are into thirding and fourthing, let me quote Christian: "In the best interest of the openSUSE project and everybody
involved, please don't speculate about the details or ask for them."
Most of us, people managers maybe more than others, have experienced cases where keeping things confidential was in the best interest of some of the people involved, but also third parties. This is one of those cases. I'd like to ask everyone to trust Christian's judgement and honor his request; I fully second both.
I'm sorry but saying what Christian said IMHO hardly counts as "keeping things confidential". If he wanted to "keep things confidential", he should not have said anything about the reasons. Indicating something about principles and beliefs and refusing to say more was guaranteed to provoke speculations and asking us not to could hardly change that.
So - where is this heading? And - will there be board elections soon? Because the way I see it, if there are just "replacements" "installed" wthout a vote... I just do not like the smell of it at all.
Related: https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Board needs updating. Also, it clearly says the board members are *elected*. Not appointed by the chair.
Please don't even insinuate that such has happened. The Board rules are clear on matters like this: en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Boad_election_rules states: "Appointment: The sitting board is allowed to appoint new members to fill a board vacancy caused by one of the following conditions: 1) resignation of a Board member or 2) the removal of a Board member, or 3) a Board member being unable to perform his duties, or 4) as part of elections if not enough people are elected."
