Time to vote on the openSUSE Strategy

Filed under
SUSE

Over the last year an openSUSE strategy discussion has been ongoing. Beginning this year things went quiet for a while as everyone was busy with the openSUSE 11.4 release and now the conference but we’re at the final stage and want to finish this. Time to vote!

Forward

The openSUSE board has reviewed the text and after fixing one or two typo’s and updating it to the latest state of affairs, they have asked Thomas Thym from the strategy team to start a vote among openSUSE Membership. So every Member can go to connect and vote on the proposal!

We’re not asking everyone if they think it is a perfect fit for themselves – we’re a diverse community and we’ll never fully agree on anything.
