- If we collectively manage to "calm" factory down to the point

"zypper dup" would you be

to switch to factory on your every day working machine?
Those that run factory already should probably not answer this question ;)
Well, I run factory on my less used desktop and I run it on my notebook since
some beta or something when it should be calm enough. If we stabilize it, I'll
run it on my notebook all the time and I'll migrate my server to Factory :-)
One of my primary concerns that has not really received an answer, I
think, is of the number of people that now get the "promotion" to
staging tree manager.
- do we have people that work at the level of code that requires
staging trees willing to take on the "new", additional
Well, people have to do it nowadays anyway, they just break Factory and have to
fix it in Factory while Factory is broken while now the breakage will move into
staging tree and get merged once it's fixed.
Sorry, for not expressing this correctly. Yes, people that break factory
have to help fix factory. But there are more eyes on factory, more help
and more "pressure" than we will get in staging tree XYZ. Thus the
incentive for "everyone" (and I use everyone very loosely) to jump in
and help is much greater as compared to a staging tree.
