It is basically useless to complain at openSUSE about such issues.
When an openSUSE user finds an issue in a free software package
which is not caused by the openSUSE distribution efforts, then
the responsibility for the issue is said to lie upstream so that
please you the openSUSE users out there speak up at the matching
free software upstream forum.
E.g. for CUPS see
Red Hat and Fedora users post there, Ubuntu users post there,...
If you - the openSUSE users - do not speak up at free software
upstream forums, the upstream authors can neither notice that
you exist at all nor care about you.
When you speak up please use a tone which is appropriate
for public communication and does not insult others.
It is the duty of the downstream developers to bubble up information to
upstream developers about how they have completely lost touch with reality. It
is also the duty of downstream developers to protect their distro users from
such monstrous bungles by freezing packages which have jumped the shark until
they either return to reality or have a fork which takes into account reality.
There are more than 50 million AARP members. The majority of those members
(estimated to be 35-40 million according to AARP) are on ever shrinking fixed
incomes using older 32-bit computers. While some of these computers still have
their original Windows distro, most have been "refurbished" to use some form of
Linux distro so they could meet all of the member's needs without costing
These people are, for the most part, non-technical. They send email, surf the
Web looking for cheap drug sources, and communicate with other members of their
voting block because they are all registered voters.
Just because BestBuy didn't sell a PP printer last year doesn't mean dropping
support for PP and serial was a good idea.
