Leap and SLE major versions come out on average about once every 4 years.
So with this plan, starting at openSUSE Leap 15 in 2018, Leap 41 should be 104 years away
You are assuming everything stays as-is for the next 100 Years. But yes, a few more stunts like this and you won't have to worry about too many new versions.
Even though I have to admit, that it probably makes sense to align with SLES, it shows again how stupid the whole "LEAP 42.1" thing was.
... the most annoying part of it btw being the overly long OBS project names: $ osc r openSUSE_Tumbleweed i586 succeeded openSUSE_Tumbleweed x86_64 succeeded openSUSE_Leap_42.2 x86_64 succeeded openSUSE_Leap_42.1 x86_64 succeeded openSUSE_13.2 x86_64 failed
even for 13.2 that's at least 9 redundant characters, but for 42.1/2/3 it's 14 and for Factory it's 12.
I wouldn't be opposed to the removal of 'openSUSE_' from the build target names for Leap and Tumbleweed.
I think thats reasonable although the only place outside ports I see issues is here http://www.enlightenment.org/ss/e-58fc8d0753ed70.80167372.jpg , Having said that I think to do this we would need to go through and change each repositories meta 1 by 1. Although Repository maintainers could already make this change. You may even choose to prepend # to Tumbleweed and * to Leap so that Tumbleweed shows up first followed by Leap as seen here in this test repo http://www.enlightenment.org/ss/e-58fc8e94546eb9.18281392.jpg (I guess i now need to pass silly names to osc build).
