The name 'uyuni-users; doesn't quite fit in our naming scheme, so I have created 'opensuse-uyuni' instead.
Assigning to Theo for updating the virtual maps.

Strictly speaking, I'd say this is about "User/Support" topic (in the end this list will the same as spacewalk-list at but I see that's restricted to openSUSE distribution itself.

  1. It's not coherent anymore with the other lists (one if them, uyuni-devel, is for open discussion).
  2. It could confuse people to think that it's about Uyuni on top on openSUSE. That's true right now, but the plan is to provide Uyuni to be installed on top of other distributions (Fedora/CentOS most probably, as it is what community demands more), and it already works with other distributions as clients.

Okay, let's go with your original proposal - "", I'll put it under "Other projects".

Theo, "" for the virtual map tnx.
