That sounds like there could be SLE 16 *and* ALP.
ALP is merely a codename - just as "SLE 16" is one. Just because it contains SLE and has a number higher than 15 doesn't imply anything about the product. SLE 11, SLE 12 and SLE 15 are all vastely different products.
And ALP is by name a "platform", so even less a product comparable to SLE 15. And what openSUSE does out of it, largely depends on the community.
History has shown that many will object to changes affecting their beloved old laptop - but are not willing to do the least to keep it alive.
You haven't really answered my question: Will the successor of Leap 15 be -v2? Currently Leap uses SLE binaries.
To be fully transparent: what was decided lately: it will *not* be V3. How much code we will compile to require V2 is up in the air and also depends on the cost/benefit calculation that is currently in progress.
As mentioned, building with V2 was just recently started in one staging project of Factory.
But we do know: if we don't deprecate V1 with the new code stream, we won't do it in the next decade.
