Where is the openSUSE board in this whole mess?

A lot of the issues being discussed are technical in nature, what is the work flow, how is factory maintained/developed, what does the release process look like? As such the board charter is to stay out of the technical stuff. This can be changed, but needs a community discussion and decision.

It seems that they were
not part of this announcement and given their individual responses, the
non-Novell/SuSE members seem really opposed and upset as well.

It's as if the board really isn't part of the guiding process for this
project, and that's not a nice feeling to be perpetuating,

We as the board have advised on a number of occasions that the actions we were observing for the path being taken would easily be interpreted as divisive, would create uncertainty and unrest. In the end this is all we can do. As the openSUSE board we are just members of the community, we do not have the right or power, nor should we have such, to tell people what to do or to decree gag orders. We can only encourage people to be considerate of their actions and abide by our guiding principals.
