Where is the openSUSE board in this whole mess?
We (the openSUSE Board) received this announcement the same way
everyone else did, in these mailinglists.
I think this is generally a 'good thing' - as a Board we want to work
in the open as much as possible, following the same model we wish to
encourage for the whole project;
I don't want the Board to become some secret filter stuff gets sent to
before public release.
I do think it's possible to work 'in the open' without including
''really scary announcements' that cause significant uncertainty for
our Project. But that requires certain principles to be followed, or
else stuff like this happens.

Maybe someone on the board would be a good person to proof read some of these announcements. I interpreted the first Email to this list completely differently to the way i was "meant to" judging by the follow up clarification emails, this was after being involved in the discussion last year. Communication between departments as poor as this has been wouldn't be tolerated in my workplace maybe given there track record of communication the team should consider getting a couple of people within the team and maybe someone outside it to proof read these emails to get them right in the first place, it would save them needing to flood on the mailing list and provide corrections once its already to late, but i would have thought that sort of thing would be common sense.
