Normally this would sound like an awesome job, but I have found that the groups surrounding specific distros tend to be rather cliquish with new comers. Seems that Novell is now looking for a new community manager.
Apparently the previous manager, is leaving on good terms. So this leaves open a position that to be honest, is likely to be more difficult than most people likely realize. But if you are up to a challenge, then perhaps this is the kind of gig you should explore.
The biggest challenge I foresee is attracting new users with the newbie love for Ubuntu, over to the OpenSuSE side of the fence. Not due to one distro being better than other, rather the fact that the Ubuntu PR machine does better overall in attracting new users.
