With all due respect, the Board's stated function is:
- Act as a central point of contact
- Help resolve conflicts
- Communicate community interests to SUSE
- Facilitate communication with all areas of the community
- Facilitate decision making processes where needed.
- Initiate discussions about new project wide initiatives
The Project's stated function is to build Linux distributions, and promote the use of Linux (source: https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Guiding_principles%C2%A0)
Neither the role of Board, nor the Project as a whole, states or suggests that they exist to engage is quasi-legal fights against nation states or super-national organisations.
Neither the Board, nor any other contributor to this initiative is engaging in 'legal fights'. However, each contributor can decide about his/her time and the goals one want to achieve, and bring this to the community.
Each contributor can..but you didn't post this as Axel the individual..you posted this as:
Axel (on behalf of the openSUSE Board)
Therefore, the only reasonable conclusion was you were posting this with the intent of signing it as either the whole Board or as the Project..hence my response.
The rest of your response doesn't really warrent a follow-up from me as it's irrelevant. The saliant point is "should the Board/Project" sign up to such an initative.
I say no.
What you do as an individual, not "on behalf of the openSUSE Board" is a totally different matter
