You are mixing two different products here. Chrome is a proprietary product of
Google and is not opensource. The opensource variant of Chrome is Chromium.
I'm not mixing anything. I know the difference between the two.
You seem to not know the difference between Factory (where you can dump
alphas/betas) and Stable (where you can't).
Therefore openSUSE can only ship the Chromium product and not Chrome.
I know. However there is no rule demanding that openSUSE must ship unstable
Google Chrome releases are based on a stable branch of Chromium.
By your logic if Firefox was a proprietary product, the only choice left would
be shipping Minefield (=Trunk nightlies) instead of a package based off the
openSUSE always had the Chromium package in the Contrib repo's for some time
already which was always based on the latest snapshots.
I know. This is why until very recently Chromium simply crashed when visiting a
site with saved passwords.
Until a few days ago the latest Chromium update couldn't be installed because
of a package conflict with libv8.
There is nobody stopping you from downloading Google Chrome and use the
absolutely stable version.
Nobody is stopping the Chromium maintainer to package Chromoium from the stable
However as indicated Chromium has been living like
this inside the openSUSE repo's for the last 1.5 year and this is the first
report about it not being an outdated but stable release.
What does it matter if I now file the first bug report. 1.5 years ago Chromium
wasn't in the main Stable repo but in officially unsupported Contrib.
The simple truth is: Chromium is now in the stable repository and has to obey
the rules that come with it.
Another simple truth is that among the popular distributions shipping Chromium,
openSUSE is the only one releasing ALPHA versions as regular packages.
Debian has 15.x in sid: http://packages.qa.debian.org/c/chromium-browser.html
Same with Arch: https://www.archlinux.org/packages/extra/i686/chromium/
Ubuntu also ships 15.x:
SRWare Iron is also based on 15.x:
