Wieso Open Source grundsätzlich von betrunkenen Meerscheinchen
geschrieben wird hat sich mir noch nicht erschlossen. Oder wo
die Viecher Commit-Rechte her haben.

I am intending to restart work on salting discourse, which has been
blocked for years by two things:
* Migration to vb5
* Fixing the database in vb4
I know there has been some progress on vb4 database fix, but vb5
migration seems to be blocked on auth which would likely be easier to
fix by just migrating to discourse right away, since it uses a system
we have integrated in other apps in the project already.
The problem I am facing is that since the vb4 fix isn't public right
now, any attempt at database migration testing I could perform on
discourse is not gonna be done on the same state of the database as we
would get after applying the fix.
How should we proceed then?
From my personal pov, setting up a duplicate vb4 setup and fixing a
database, so that we can properly test it and apply those fixes back
into the main instance is the best way to solve this issue. From there
we can just work on migrating to discourse, with testing that actually
tests the correct state of the database.
Alternatively I'm sure we could find a Nextcloud plugin to replace
forums with Nextcloud too, I'm sure that would solve all the
I have synced Leap 15.3, Leap 15.4 and Tumbleweed on mirror.opensuse.mu.
However, on mirrors.o.o I see that it only shows “TW ISO”. Is there something I have missed?
Also, I am trying to understand the openSUSE mirrors better. Am I correct to understand that when requests are sent to download.o.o it automatically picks up the best suited mirror based on the incoming IP address? Or am I thinking incorrectly here?
