Vincent Untz served as the openSUSE Board Chairman the past two years while now SUSE -- as the primary sponsor of openSUSE -- has selected Richard Brown to serve as the new chairman. The announcement was made on

Vincent Untz has also made some parting comments on his blog. Congratulations to Vincent Untz and Richard Brown on their respective events.
