Well, with Boosters we were boosting mainly by lowering barriers and making
sure there no obstacles in contributors way. Now openSUSE Team is going to
on openSUSE Factory (Factory is openSUSE as well) trying to improve it by
making sure we have a better more automatized tools to manage it.
But personally I agree that openSUSE Team @ SUSE is not a good team name
regardless of what we do (well, if we worked on furniture, it would be even
worse fitting name :-D )
