Hi,

Within the past few weeks, board member Peter Linnell accepted a position
with SUSE. Peter will continue to participate in the the openSUSE
community but to maintain compliance with the openSUSE project election
rules, Peter recognized that he needed to resign from the openSUSE Board.
The rules state that "In the event that individuals affiliated with a
company or organization hold more than 40 per cent of the electable seats,
affiliates from that corporation will be required to resign until fewer
than 40 per cent of electable seats are controlled by that company or
organization."

With Peter's resignation, the Board has opted, in accordance to the election
rules, to appoint a new member to fill the vacancy until the election is
completed later this year. Having reviewed the results from last years
elections and discussed the opportunity with the top vote recipients, the
openSUSE board members would like to announce and welcome Manu Gupta to the
board.

That's great news, I know of his efforts and work to further openSUSE via
google summer of code and his community involvment.

Congratulations Manu!


Cheers the noo,
Graham
