    that's how i understand it, too, and it makes perfect sense to me. i'm not
    sure which way one would have to go to become a 'project member,' but i
    don't think it would be very difficult. makes sense to expect more
    committment from those who want to have a say in the direction the project
    takes, above voicing their opinions.

    There are a number of things that 'qualify' - the wiki page about project
    membership (sorry, I don't have the link handy at the moment) should
    provide some guidance.

    I would like to say that I have nothing against having a group of people working on openSUSE and they can call themselves anything they like and setup any membership requirements they like. My single objection was an attempt to redefine product versioning in what I feel is an unusual way to solve an imaginary problem that does not solve the originally stated issue. Also, I do feel the smaller the group that makes such decisions, the more likely they can make bad decisions.

    Consider that I actively use openSUSE, recommended it to anyone that will listen, install on anyones computer I can and make every effort to contribute in a positive way in this openSUSE forum. I do not however, need to agree on every decision that a openSUSE group might make and have an obligation to point out such oddities to the general public when I determine it is right to do so. While at all times following the proper forum setup and protocols. This is after all, the Soapbox and it would be an empty area without differences in opinion.

    Thank You,
