This has the potential for causing a lot of trouble, and I would urge
the Board to think carefully now about how they will deal with it when
it happens.

his discussion is very usefull. I think it's an evidence of the good health of the openSUSE project.

effectively it shows there are two different (even 3) kind of members we have to distinguish in a manner or an other.

* the board members. Obviously they need to have time, general recognition and wisdom, when they speak they must (should?) be listened.

* the "general" members. They work for openSUSE for years, with little or no recognition, other than eventual bitorrent prioritary access or demo dvd and tshirts on the mail (thank you :-). As I see the facts, these are the "members" that will be honored with e-mail and IRC cloak. and this is good.

But I don't think these members should "speak for the project". Of course, as oldtimers, they advice may have some more weigth, but that's all.

* moderators. Preferably not board members (board members should have more important job to do), they need some authority. May be also project leaders or wiki sysadmins that own some more permissions on the wiki/servers than john doe. These are not to be numerous, but could have some recognition in the e-mail?
