Spent my Monday morning dealing with this. Not the best start to the week, but no conf calls is always a bonus I suppose!

Who says the +Fedora Project has a NIH issue? Great to see them working with, contributing to and improving #openQA . +openSUSE welcomes our hat wearing peers with open arms in improving Linux and open source software.

So it looks like I've been involved with +openSUSE in one shape or form for 15 years now - this predates the creation of the openSUSE Project in its current form. I started with S.u.S.E. 6.2, not long after growing my first chest hair, and haven't looked back since (neither has my chest). I've spent just over three of those years serving the openSUSE community as an elected member of the openSUSE Board, this is my fourth and final year (for at least two years) of carrying out my civic duty to a community that I truly love and enjoy.

As part of being on the Board we have our annual Face to Face meeting this weekend, and to kick the meeting off we are holding a "Meet the Board" session at +SUSE's offices in Nuremberg tomorrow (Friday 27March). This is an opportunity for all members of the community to come and meet the people that they elected to steer the good ship Geeko, ask questions and meet other community members. You never know, there may even be some fine beverages served.

I'm looking forward to meeting my loyal subjects, many of whom I consider to be friends. If you have the opportunity to serve the community you value whether it be on a Board/Council/Conference booth, I would highly recommend it; it has been a wonderfully rewarding experience, and hopefully openSUSE has benefited from my service.

+Richard Brown from oSC '14 I have +Ilias R.'s badge... and it's probably the only badge I keep from a conference (as some kind of reminder on the risks of free drinks).
