I must be missing something here, or it might have been explained but my
attention span across the zillions of emails around this topic of
creating a new distro is just very bad...

For openSUSE 11.1, we will have updates ('support') for 18 months.
Those who wants to provide long term support for 11.1, can simply create
their own updates.

So, please enlighten me what I'm not getting here...

Haven't followed this closely either, but the following advantages of
"openSLES" over "openSUSE LTS" spring to mind.

* rebuilding SLES updates seems easier than creating your own from scratch
* I guess SLES is supposed to be more stable and polished than openSUSE
* A lot of stuff is certified and tested against SLES

Same reasons why CentOS has out-lived the Fedora Legacy project I guess :-)
