    I understand general politics being a problem but this is still openSUSE related, especially since all members got mail about this.

    I was wondering what the hell are we even voting about.

    I understand you completely. My post was a sort of bitter disaproval of the situation.

    All what I see is technical explanations on how voting works, but nothing about what to vote for or against. I understand that someone will come back and say Yes when you vote for and No when you vote against. But people want to see arguments from both sides why they should vote for or against.

    But for me this is all pure academic theory. I a did not get a mail, I seem not to be a member. And I guess that is better in the current situation (looks a bit like "I do not want to be a member of an organisation that allows me to become a member").

    Yes, I imagine many forum members will keep their distance from any petition that they do not understand and it helps not to be a member in such a situation IMHO.

    Being a member of this Forum, does not mean that, you're an openSUSE Member …

    Yes, there's a special class of openSUSE users who are “Members” – people who are members of this Form are not automatically members of that special class of openSUSE users …

    Correct, and I am such a member.....but I will still not be voting for something I do not understand. Simple as that.
