Exactly. But sorry, openSUSE is not "quite only
Novell" in my opinion.
The distribution is mostly driven by Novell, but not the community
around it, obviously.
until now it is (driven by Novell). This actual initiative
is a first step as independance, probably necessary and
usefull if smartly done (as it seems to be, given the
founders). would be much better to have
e-mail than the other way.
In fact I don't really see how Novell could give up the
"dictatorship" on openSUSE, given Novell would have a very
bad time living without the openSUSE control (suppose a
violent fork), but could give the openSUSE-"community" a
much larger freedom, the word "community" making clear the
independance from the mother house :-)
on the "community", there should be no dictatorship, even
I think we do have a lot of people.
The "problem", currently, is rather that it is scattered around many
I don't have never seen separate communities grouped if not
by a collective effort of they own founders.
if you can show the signatures of most of the main present
suse community leaders here (as leaders of they own
community), you can acheive the goal of meging them, but you
wont do that on creating a new one.
in fact, probably each existing community (the really living
ones) have something special (not necesseraly easily
visible) that makes it alive, often the simple personality
of one of they members.
I mean, if I'm part of any community, people can come and
say: jdd is here, I can be part of it. But I know there are
also that wil say: jdd is here, I will _not_ be part of this

If it is about mplayer, mad, lame, Packman, Guru, etc.. then we have to

this very sentence could be a good start as a rule :-)
Just forget about "rules" atm. Let's not spend 6 months thinking about
rules, control, sysops, how to enforce them, bla bla bla.
Let's just do it, right now, see how it evolves and adjust accordingly,
we need a rule, no necessity to discuss if for days :-) it's

I also think so, but know many people wont agree :-( worth a
