This tread is going greatly out of topic.
The topic is: software-o-o is not working as intended, let's fix it. It's not about a discussion which packages a user is allowed to use and what not.
One major problem of s-o-o is it is not working as intended. And with the current setup of projects it is almost impossible to fix it.
Also not everyone using software-o-o is an openSUSE user already. Just yesterday I had a discussion with someone who was thinking about using openSUSE Leap 15.4 as their new workstation OS instead of Ubuntu because of the push for snapd, but he first wanted to know if all the packages that he needs are available, software-o-o would be the perfect website for that.
When s-o-o only takes the packages from the official repositories it becomes significantly easier to implement correctly, and every Leap installation becommes significantly more robust. If you add more or less random repositories to your system, sooner or later you will run into trouble.
So this discussion is completely on topic: How do we provide a consistent set of packages to openSUSE users, and make it discoverable.
