Actually, we SUSE are giving it all: the Uyuni codebase (and even docs
base) is identical to SUSE Manager. The only difference is support.

As a contributor to Uyuni, SUSE will focus on openSUSE/SUSE Linux
Enterprise on the server side, and on the most popular distributions on
the client side (e. g. Uyuni includes crazy clients stuff such as
Springdale Linux -Princeton's clone of RHEL-, Astra Linux -Russian
Debian-derivative-, etc; SUSE Manager also includes that -because the
codebase is the same as Uyuni, we don't add or remove- but there is no
support from SUSE, it's only community-supported)

I said this when I presented Uyuni at CentOS Dojo in Brussels 6 weeks
ago and I will repeat it again: we are open to run Uyuni Server and
Proxy on other platforms (e. g. CentOS or Debian) if anyone is willing
to contribute and maintain it.


Same for governance: I would love to open it.

Thank you
