So minimal "fix" is to change distribution ID which at least allows search to work again for 15.3 again.
So... how about you create a pull request to the repository? Let's continue there, shall we? :-)
And that Ladies and Gentlemen is how you contribute to the our project. You gather the code, you analyze the problem and you propose a fix/workaround/feature. Everything else (especially talking on some mailinglist) is based on *THIS*.
Yes thanks for your contribution.
The lesson learned - software.o.o cannot be maintained by external volunteers alone. This MUST be driven and coordinated by openSUSE release management.
I guess you think because this team has "management" in their name that they have actual resources to direct? They don't, just a group of people that tries to do their best. If they can't pin-point/understand the problem, they can't. If they can't implement the fix, they can't...
Yeah openSUSE is a complete volunteer project, sure some of those volunteers such as myself are paid by a company to work on certain things but really that is a company volunteering time. The openSUSE Project has no bank account or resources to work on anything so for things like this the project really does depend on volunteers such as yourself.
It is worth pointing out though that its very much in SUSE's interest for openSUSE to continue functioning to the point of creating a couple of distros because they use that as the foundation of some of there projects. To that they commit to meeting what they see as the core needs of openSUSE to keep it running. But they do that as equal volunteers with everyone in the community for the most part. So if people like you don't step up and help then often things simply don't happen. Without changes to our legal structure and alot of additional sponsorship its not really possible for the project to have a group of people working on things that the project thinks are important but that no one is stepping up to take care of.
