Changing my responsibilities @ SUSE

As you already know, during the last few months, SUSE has reorganized responsibilities and resources around openSUSE. As a result of this new strategy, the openSUSE Team has been created (with Agustin as team lead), formed by those SUSE employees who work full time in the community project.

I've worked with the openSUSE team to hand over my openSUSE related responsibilities to them and now it's time for me to formally take over some new responsibilities inside SUSE:

I'll continue to be part of the SUSE Product Management team - now as product manager - and continue driving SUSE Linux Enterprise 12 efforts with the other product managers and engineering.
openSUSE is the upstream of SUSE Linux Enterprise and with my help driving development and keeping SUSE a good partner in the openSUSE ecosystem, I'll continue to be involved.  Also, I will continue to contribute to openSUSE with packaging and reviewing of packages.

As SUSE product manager I'm also joining the efforts around cloud, e.g. SUSE Cloud, and SUSE Studio and will also take product management ownership for the toolchain (compiler, debugger, C library, ...).
