Not voting or having no opinion is something different.
In the first case people are mostly not interested, in the second they are,

Exactly. A blank vote means that the people take the effort of voting,
so they show interest, but for whatever reason they don't choose one of
the options. The percent of voters change.

If you (officials) do not add it, you are forcing me to not vote.


I am only speaking here as myself, but I think it makes perfect sense. Not voting (also known as abstaining) tends to show lack of participation.

However, a vote of "No Preference" shows the openSUSE Member is *interested* enough in the Project to participate, but would accept either outcome.

This would be a preferred accounting of the Members on the subject, IMHO.

... and, knock of the silly Brexit comparisons. The first choice is, should we change the name, or should we not.

After that, if the answer is to change, we then need to make other choices beginning with a round of candidates for the new name.

Nothing complicated about it to most of us, only to those who would like to fill the mailing lists with distracting nonsense.
