today, as it has been announced, is the last day for presenting your
candidacy for the openSUSE Board.
After closing the 2012 summer/autumn agenda (12.2 Release, openSUSE
Summit and openSUSE Conference), the openSUSE Team is able to
concentrate on the future. We are beginning to plan our future actions
in openSUSE. This is a process in which obviously you will have a lot
In any possible scenario we are thinking of, the Board will play a key
role. It is not that it hasn't played it until now, don't get me
wrong, it is just that we will need it more than ever.
For SUSE, it will be simpler to help openSUSE if we have a strong
Board. It is up to the community to decide what "strong Board" means,
but at least, it might be:
* Fully supported by the community.
* Representative of what the community is and want.
Having a voting system to select the Board members helps to achieve
the above, but is not enough. It needs help from every community
member, from the Board members itself and from SUSE, of course.
At SUSE, we have the commitment to help the Board to achieve their
goals, the community goals.
Please think carefully about presenting your candidacy for the Board.
Interesting times are ahead of you.
I also like to encourage you to have a vibrant debate about what the
Board should do, how to support it, what it should look like in a
couple of years, what needs improvements, how SUSE should help the
Board.... This is the right time for such a debate.
Agustin, I hope you don't mind me pointing out that your comments above
would have been better posted a week or two ago, instead of on the last
day for announcing a candidacy. Anyway, it can't be changed, so just
an observation on my part.
