Tw is now (not half a year ago) a copy of factory, made after factory

It is not based in 13.2 at all.
It was based on 13.1, some months back. Then the method changed with
13.2. Actually, Current Tumbleweed has the same name as the old one, but
it is quite different.
Have you tried to follow what I said in my post to which you are replying?
My posts also raises 2 questions:
1) if Tumbleweed comes from Factory then why are there so many problems
being reported re Tumbleweed when people try it? The Portal states, as
you show above, that TW is updated after "......software has been
integrated, stabilized and tested. ....." See for example the comments
to the announcement that the snapshot 20150126 has just been released.
Automated tests, not human based tests. When a new failure is found,
someone has to design and implement a new automated test to catch it.
Oh, this is a new one. "Automated tests", eh? But doesn't EVERYTHING go
thru "automated tests" before being made available in a repository?
If what you say is true (only "automated tests") then the wording in the
Tumbleweed Portal is goobly-dook and would not pass the 'truthfullness'
test if it was a commercial on the TV.
But then why doesn't
it have all the available repositories available to it for people to
use? For example there are:
Well, that's up to the people that create those repos.
Translation: It's someone else's fault - fine. But who is responsible
for managing those "people who create those repos."?
but there is not mention of them: they don't appear in the list of
repositories in YaST nor are they mentioned in the Tumbleweed Portal.
Not all repos are listed everywhere for all distributions. And the
structure changes without documentation update.
Sorry, but you are trying to defend the indefensible here. If 13.1,
13.2, and earlier, can have the repos shown in YaST then Tumbleweed
should also have the repos applicable to it shown.
These are clearly shown in the list of repositories
yet are not included in TW's YaST.
The list is a dynamic file downloaded from somewhere, I don't know the
details. Someone could update it.
