He knows a thing or two about SUSE and its community. He is used to travelling a lot, to give interviews, talking to the press, and to speaking in public, and on top, he knows how to organise events for a once big linux distribution. And thanks to a really fun group event at his previous company right after FOSDEM last year, he might actually be available for a new opportunity.
Plus, he lives like 200 meters away from the SUSE Nuernberg office, how lucky is that?
(oh, music is the stones, track 4 of 12x5, listed here as suse planet is horribly broken with respect to livejournal.)
