There's another potential wall.

Talking is fine.  I have a question for them.  It's very pointed, but also
pretty important if we're going head down the path of working with them.

How is OpenSuSE ensuring that the changes they integrate into their projects
are not encumbered by patents given their parent's deal with Microsoft?

I realize this is larger than just OpenSuSE.  However, given the proximity they
have to that issue, it would be good to hear if/what they're doing about it.
