Sorry for being 50 Shades of Wrong

I was at the wonderful FOSDEM this weekend just gone and met up with many fine folk (as always) unfortunately there were also many people I didn’t manage to catch up with. On the Sunday I attended a talk on The Tumbleweed Factory given by openSUSE’s very own Release Manager, Coolo. I made a statement about this talk, and have been challenged on that statement - I’m glad that I was challenged by one of our community members, because they were quite right to do so.

In Coolo’s talk he mentioned that SUSE is thinking about pushing the sources for SUSE Linux Enterprise Server to the Open Build Service for people to use. Unfortunately I managed to butcher this very simple statement and completely twist the message by tweeting the following:

This statement is not only factually incorrect, but is wrong. So wrong in fact that it is not only wrong, but WRONG!

For this I am genuinely sorry. It was not my intention to misrepresent/inflate or just plain lie about what was said. As a member of the openSUSE Board, I should know better than to twist and massage a simple statement. I can’t say anything other than sorry, I completely accept that I was wrong. Hopefully Coolo’s slides will be available soon as will the video recording of his talk.

Coolo, Ich bin ein esel!

I'm sorry. I'm so sorry
