[opensuse-project] Getting OpenSUSE community together
Dear OpenSUSE,

As a part of an ongoing effort to make our distro better visually and user
experience-wise we have come to a realization that things would be much easier
if we had some sort of a unified community tool (or a set of those) to help us
widen our outreach.
We are aware that there is already SUSE Connect, as well as an abundance of
various mailing lists and IRC channels. However, few of our users actually know
about those, or actively use them.
So the idea so far is to make a desktop application which would ultimately bind
all those services together into a sort of a single SUSE account (just like the
service available in by Ubuntu, and OSX).
So far this is just an idea and we need your input to see just how far can we
take this and just what exactly we should be looking into in terms of
So the brief description so far is this:
"A desktop application connecting the whole of openSUSE fandom into a single
network in order to widen the community, lower the communication and
contribution barriers and
add a unique twist to openSUSE ecosystem where every new user has an
opportunity to share and communicate with other openSUSE users."

Basically this should be as simple as integrating all our existing social
services (Open Fate, SUSE Connect, mailing lists and IRC canals into a single
easy to use "Control Centre".

How does the idea sound like to you?
What would be advantages of this effort?
What would be the drawbacks of it?
Would you create yet another account for our openSUSE social services?
