Hi all,

I am not an openSUSE member and therefore not eligible to vote. But
nonetheless I would like to express my opinion here and encourage you to
keep the existing and well-established name.

I have seen really big companies investing millions in campains to
communicate a name change - and in my perception they still failed, and
in the end they lost part of their visibility in the public. For
openSUSE that would be a bitter setback.

The name openSUSE stands for an open, rock-solid, powerful and community
driven distribution. This is a treasure that we must not risk recklessly.

Hi all,

We will have a Project name change vote and that process will be carried
out using Helios, the same platform that we use to run openSUSE elections.

Only openSUSE members are eligible to cast a vote and voting
instructions are sent to the member alias.

Therefore, please make sure that your membership alias is forwarding
emails to the correct email address. If any change is required to your
email address you may contact heroes@xxxxxxxxxxxx to help you out.

If you have any query regarding your membership status you may reach out
to the membership officials through membership-officials@xxxxxxxxxxxx.

Hi Martin,
Thanks for your input. Most pros and cons have been mentioned in earlier
threads here, yet the Board felt that this is something they cannot decide on,
without consulting the community. Hence the vote.
