By the way, openSUSE is more an upstream project. With the start of SUSE

That's an interesting point, Kim. Thinking back on the strategy
discussions, one of the proposed strategies was that openSUSE become a
base for derivatives.

But it was not a popular proposal by any means.

Who wants to contribute to a piece of junk that is only intended to be diamond
in the rough for others to polish and take advantage of.

And the whole idea builds on the assumption that derivative makers will
contribute back - which is highly doubtful. And we're already seing that.
Derivative makers are making a lot of effort to differentiate from openSUSE,
rather than help making openSUSE better.
