I think the proposal is a good one, I would accept it, but there has not been

of it before accepting it. I would like to hear pros and cons first, then the
should decide.

I for one welcome with open arms this decision and I think everyone else who uses openSUSE should do the same instead of carting out the old chestnut of "we haven't voted on this yet".

Why do I welcome it?

Because finally we have somebody actually making decisions about what should be done in openSUSE and actually providing directions to where openSUSE should go.

The "Community" has shown itself to be abysmally incapable of handling anything except argue about how to vote for a "Board" and who is able to vote for this "Board" and who are "members of the community" and other la-la "in-depth" useless and pedantic concerns.

A number of us have been questioning for quite some time who and how openSUSE is "managed" and who is making the decisions as to which direction it is to go.

But now, thankfully, we have a post 4 days ago (10 August) by Agustin Benito Bethencourt with the subject, "update about openSUSE Team at SUSE" which, at last, shows that there is somebody who has taken the reigns.

This decision re the approach to UEFI is to be applauded and those who are doing something about it should be congratulated and given all the help because NOBODY in the so-called "Community" has the slightest idea of how the heck this UEFI is going to affect openSUSE but now this matter has been taken in hand and a solution worked on. The "community" has now been moaning and groaning about this UEFI but what has it done about it?
