Thanks for all the replies!
Well, my question was motivated by the fact I would *not* like to
remove the Geeko icon in the KDE menu and the artwork, because that
would make openSUSE quite anonymous, and my idea is also related to
promoting openSUSE in the scientific world, where I keep finding Red
Hat and CentOS on my road just because they know them. Is there any
chance I can maintain those, so that users can actually understand its
Well, yes. Do not debrand. And I think Bryen already was showing the
way to make it clear by asking for permission at the board.
I don't think there will be any doubt that this would be a real win
What does 'redistribution' mean in your
case? I mean, how many openSUSE
based appliances are on the road which haven't cared?
Redistribution means putting the ISO of the live on sourceforge (I
actually created a project already called CFDGeeko, but that was
before I knew all the details on the de-brading) so others can
actually find it and use it.
Yes, I have this kind of appliance for download on SF
with my pet
project. It gets downloaded regularly and people report that its useful.
I know many do not care of the guidelines, but I
don't want troubles,
Sure, its better to go the save route.
even if I find the "de-branding" quite
annoying, and I don't
understand how it can help us to market openSUSE, when the resulting
distro looks like a "hand-made" distribution with default upstream
Yes, thats the point. Your idea is great and promotes openSUSE in a
interesting area, as other projects do. I really hope that this (your ;-)
case pushes the board to work on a more general solution which is not
debranding. It should be possible - let's cross fingers :)
