    I note from reading the lengthy mailinglist thread that Richard has shared a link to a video explaining the Foundation proposal discussed in the openSUSE Conference 2019...

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QUZmc4CXzFQ&t=1s

    and for those who don't have time to watch, he summarizes...
    It does a good job of explaining why a Foundation is being pursued and
    in what form.

    In a few short bulletpoints for those who cant be bothered to watch the video.

    - The Primary motivation is to enable the openSUSE Project to be able
    to receive, spend, and sign it's own contracts/sponsorships/money
    - This should be _in addition to_, not _in replacement of_ the
    exceptionally positive and good working relationship openSUSE has with
    SUSE
    - Both the Board and SUSE are keen on using this opportunity to
    codify the nature of that close working relationship into the
    by-laws/charter of the Foundation (likely to be a German Stiftung)
    - I personally refer to this effort and openSUSE seeking "less
    dependence" on SUSE, not "independence"

    Hopefully you can see how the above tenants have learned the lessons
    of previous efforts and I would describe this current effort as the
    most amicable, mutually respectful, and uniquely "openSUSE/SUSEian",
    with the vast majority so far seeming to agree with the broad strokes
    of the topic.

    One likely sticky topic around the Foundation will be that of the
    Trademarks, a number of the reasons I've already mentioned in this
    thread..hence why I think the naming discussion is a good one to have
    now. And despite my personal preferences, I will gladly embrace
    whatever the community decides.
    Either way it will help shape the structure of the Foundation as it
    comes together.
