I really was upset when it was changed from SuSE and again SUSE, but

distinctive sub "brand" names for openSUSE.

How about having a foundation name different as the distro name and we
get to keep openSUSE? Something like:

        +--------------------+
        | Example Foundation |
        +---------+----------+
                  |
                  |
                  v
            +-----+----+
            | openSUSE |
            +----+-----+
                 |
        v--------+----------v
       +------+      +------------+
       | Leap |      | Tumbleweed |
       +------+      +------+-----+
                            |
                            |
                     v------+-----v
                 +-------+    +---------+
                 | Kubic |    | MicroOS |
                 +-------+    +---------+

We might not address the limitations expressed in previous emails
regarding usage of the SUSE wording, but we could have user groups,
local associations, domain names registered under "Example Foundation"
without requiring SUSE permission. It would solve the inconvenience of
getting sponsorship & funding which currently has to go through SUSE.

Local user groups & associations would perhaps still be required to
agree to a terms of use for the "openSUSE" wording.
