I have a very strong suspicion that whoever is arguing for this
Evergreen version and against what Tumbleweed is all about is
doing so without the slightest idea of having actually installed
and used Tumbleweed.

I'm not, indeed we are not, arguing against Tumbleweed.

You are not understanding.

Tumbleweed fills a need.

Evergreen fills a different need.

Both are different approaches, and both are valid. Some people want
one type of maintenance and development, other people prefer the
other type. So what? This is Linux, we have choices.

I cannot disagree with that.

But all choices have a cost - which is what I was trying to point
out: having someone spend time in porting programs to an out-of-date
version instead of spending that valuable time in doing something for
the latest version(s).

no one here is "arguing for this Evergreen version and against what Tumbleweed is all about", but there _is_ one here who (for whatever misguided reason) has decided it is imperative to win in the battle between Evergreen and Tumbleweed (as if there were a battle to fight!)..

some forget that "the community" is more than just those who wish to be out on the leading edge and in the midst of "the action" aimed at moving into the future..

there is more...the community _also_ contains folks _using_ openSUSE in businesses, offices, schools, libraries, factories and etc who want to turn on the lights everyday and have their operating system *work* dependably, reliably, productively, and predictably...with no futz..

that part of the community is as important to openSUSE as is those who run factory all the time...or run Tumbleweed, or 12.2..

_and_ work on both 11.4 and 11.2 Evergreens is _not_ simply work on out-of-date software with no interest for anyone...instead it is one more chance to test/observe and receive feedback from a population on a system which is quite similar in maturity to the enterprise products of our main sponsor..

there is room for both ends of the community, and everything in between--so, stop shooting!
