but, it _seems_ to me that there has been a sharp drop off of Novell employees contributing/posting to the mail lists/forums since the NYPost scoop..
LOL, oh please...
i wonder what happens if (as has happened too often in recent weeks) the forum (or mail lists/irc/wiki/etc) machines/nets need TLC to return to work...
Then the people who care for that will take care of that. Like always.
just thinking out loud: do 'we' need to make some backup plans _before_ the communications networks go down and _then_ learn our corporate sponsor has lost interest in 'we' and has decided to save those man hours for more profitable endeavors ??
Would you stop spreading this FUD? Do you really think that we are that spineless? A lot of your contributions make me wonder if you would not be better of in some other project where you feel comfortable to take off your tinfoil hat. Have you considered that? :)
I give you my word that openSUSE will not drop off the face of the earth. No matter what the future brings.
believe it or not, i'm not worried about anything dropping off the face of the earth so much as how we will reconstitute capability *if* the mail lists/wiki/fora and etc were to suddenly be unsupported (with, electricity...say)..
if you are sure everything is gonna be smooth, then great..
its just in my former lives it was always best to plan for the worst, and hope for the best..
my experience is if you plan for the best, it is difficult to re-plan in the dark.
ymmv, tinfoil or not.
