A few lightweight comments:
1) this question reminds me strangely of the Brexit referendum as it’s a simple question
with one path familiar and the other totally undefined. I think it will produce the same

for something deliverable.
2) at the same time as they vote, if they choose “change" they should be asked how
much time they will contribute. If the answer is zero, their vote is discarded. If it’s
some time, then keep them to their commitment.
Enough of the people suggesting the change are very active in the
openSUSE community especially around areas such as branding and design
so in my opinion atleast there are enough willing volunteers that if the
name change vote is successful they will be able to do the work required.
