This tread is going greatly out of topic.
The topic is: software-o-o is not working as intended, let's fix it.
The topic is also, as I understand it: should we fix it --- therefore investing in it --- or just let it die, and for the security issues and ease with one-click-shopping from random repos will break your system, we should let it die (at least in its current form).
It's not about a discussion which packages a user is allowed to use and what not.
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.
If *and only if* it showed just the official distro packages (both for Leap and TW).
We do not want to get the users' hope up too much by showing them software from all sorts of repos, then to catastrophically let them down when their system eventually breaks.
