In the future, if a vote is proposed, at least determine what is
necessary to display the wants of the community as nearly as
possible rather than ONLY the desires of those choosing to vote.

"... the wants of the community ..."?

You CANNOT get a really sensible result when you are using
non-statistical methods to determine a "policy", so to speak.

If the Board got rid of the playtime rule about who can become a
"member" and gave the membership to everyone who was using
openSUSE/Tumbleweed on a regular basis (yes, I know, you want to
know how this is to be determined) then you would be getting close
to having a complete 'population', or at least know what the
complete population may be, who would potentially be the pool of
voters. Right now you have 491 voters and you think that this is
the total sum of people who use openSUSE/Tumbleweed and excitement
when one gets 267 persons to cast a vote.

Nobody really believes that a handful of only 491 "members" using
openSUSE/Tumbleweed represents "the community", do they?
