"Yunashko says, "My goal is, and I believe this is shared by the others on the board, that we ensure an effective listening process is in place where the community feels it has a place to communicate its concerns, wishes, and goals and that it feels it is being effectively heard. There is already good collaboration and communication between the community and Novell/SUSE, but these things often occur more on an individual level (which is a good thing). It will be our job to collectively crystallize the mood of the community as a whole in our relations with Novell.

""However, we also want to be a board that isn't just a conduit to Novell but also a conduit to the community and individual members. We need to recognize the challenges that community contributors, be they packagers, developers, educators, tech-supporters, or translators, face, and find ways to empower them with the resources they may need.""
