If the Board's only reaction to negative feedback
from openSUSE Members
is to stubbornly refuse to consider that feedback and instead escalate
the situation by saying "if you dont like it, run a distrust motion",
then I don't think the very concept of a Board is suitable for a
Project with openSUSE's Guiding Principles.
I don't see that there is "only" and "stubborn" reactions. Simon
explained, I explained. You told that you are not satisfied by the
clarification. So maybe you might want to sweep in front of your own
door regarding stubbornness.
Thankfully, I know from the experience that the Board can operate with
more nuance than the binary choice you post here.
It wasn't a binary choice I gave, just yet another option. But of course
you can keep on leaving out the broader picture painted and just go for
singular, out of context statements.
It is true, I currently have my doubts about the Board, justified by
the actions/inactions of the Board and the responses in this thread.
That said, I retain hope that some individuals in the Board will be
able to influence things so that the Board may act more consistently
with the Project's Guiding Principles in the future.
...or at least how you interpret these principles.
So I will not be baited into escalating my disapproval into a full
blown motion for your removal from the Board. >
I think having my disapproval publicly stated is the only way available
for the Board to improve in the spirit of openness, quality,
transparency and respect which the Project is meant to operate under.
Wait, you only raised your voice and won't take action? Uuh.
