Dear openSUSE Members,
There have been long discussions on the openSUSE Project mailing list
about the pros and cons of a the project name change. The discussions
contain a lot of arguments in favor or against such a change.
The community appears divided over this matter and under such
circumstances it is not easy to draw consensus by just looking at the
mailing list discussions. The board asked for a project name change vote
to obtain a clearer picture of the community's decision.
The vote will open on 10 October 2019 and end on 31 October 2019.
Members will receive their vote link and credential in an email sent to
their openSUSE email alias. Three weeks ago an email  was sent to the
project mailing list to inform members of this vote and thus giving
everyone enough time to check whether their openSUSE email alias is
redirecting emails properly. A second reminder  was sent about a week
If you haven't had time to update your member email alias, you can still
do so by sending an email to admin(a)opensuse.org. Please reach out to the
Election Officials through election-officials(a)opensuse.org if you are
having any trouble receiving your vote link.
The vote page asks whether we change the project name and the answer
option is either "yes" or "no". The result of the vote will be
on 1 November 2019.
