Leap, this
one tries to format /home??
This is already reported as bug 1094924

Yes it is reported but for TW, not for leap 15. Going to put a note
because this has to be fat in the release notes. VERY fat.


How does something like this happen? New code that wasn't present in Beta
finds it way into the release -- and then threatens to format your
existing
home partition? Doooah -- somebody really screwed the pooch with this
one...

If Carlos tested perhaps 4 of the Betas and there was no problem --
how is there a problem now?

Wasn't the whole idea of ringed development and Q&A supposed to
eliminate just
this type of problem?

The problem here, David, is that very few, if any, people do a *fresh*
*install* of a newer Alpha/Beta, or even do a fresh install of the final
release version; an Alpha version is installed at some point in time and
after this 'zypper dup' is used on the many iterations of oS to finally
end up with the official release version.

I intentionally did a few betas on my laptop. But I was hampered because
the new partitioning code didn't have yet the feature to import
partitions, which meant more work for me each time I installed fresh.

When exactly it was added I did not notice, so I did not test this
feature :-(
