"Some Novell developers, who were also contributors to the OpenSUSE project, were laid off by the company. This has caused some other contriburors to apparently ask the OpenSUSE board about the future of the project.

"In response to these queries, board members Pascal Bleser and Bryen Yunashko have made a joint statement and posted it to the opensuse-project mailing list.

"Unfortunately, it is a truism that when people in any organisation or project feel the necessity to make statements of this nature, then the actual situation is much worse than is made out. But whether this holds good for OpenSUSE will be revealed only in the fullness of time.

"Bleser and Yunashko have sought to emphasise the community nature of the project; they also state that they are convinced that Novell is still committed to OpenSUSE."
