I'd like to point out, that "AI" is not
an abbreviation that is super
obvious, at least I did not know what it stood for when I first read it
(it stands for "Action Item" in case someone who reads along does not
Thanks for the feedback. In the Wiki it appears as ACTION. ;)

AI Richard to update Membership pages on wiki
Do you have any ETA on this? I think it should be clear for newcomers
how to become a member - the current (outdated) information might deter

The Board decided to sponsor the team with a 5-1 vote

team. I doubt we will find users let alone contributors among the
players or their parents. I think this money could be spent on groups
or clubs that are closer related to our project instead.
I also don't understand why "local" matters here. I thought openSUSE
was an "open and global community project" (quote from
) - where does "local" fit in a
I couldn't agree more. The vote against this sponsorship is mine, but
that is how democracy works. ;) It would be interesting to know what
other people think about that. Any other opinions?
