SUSE has put into openSUSE in all periods, even in those in which, as
you wrote, "SUSE barely invested anything".

To my eyes (being both a SUSE employee and a community contributor) the
connection between openSUSE and SUSE is stronger and closer of what some
people in this thread seem to believe. I seriously doubt any of both
would survive without the other.

I am not as involved as you are, Ancor, but I do have no doubt that both could
survive without one another. Nonetheless that is nothing anyone would ever
really want to aim for and I seriously doubt that a foundation of a different
name than openSUSE does harm our connection.

I already made that comparison but I will write it here again: You don't need
to be married and have the same last name to be a couple. It even can help the
relationship if each stays or gains some degree of independence.

Forming a bond between those two brands then might be as valuable as sharing a

All that is speculation. And will be until the point where we have to define
the rules of a newly formed relationship between the community backed by their
own foundation and brand and SUSE as a company. This can define the degree of
support and what SUSE will continue to contribute in resources etc.

want to make the step into that degree of independence. I am still in favor of
this way but I wouldn't be sad if we decide to stay with the current brand.
