as we're closing to the release of Leap 42.3, I'd like to ask your
opinions about the frequency of update kernel releases.
For Leap 42.1 and 42.2, I've tried to pick up the update regularly,
roughly once per month. For example, below is the list of kernels
that have been released for Leap 42.2:
4.4.36-5 * 20161208
4.4.49-16 * 20170219
4.4.57-18.3 * 20170330
4.4.72-18.12 * 20170619
The kernels with asterisk are for security updates.
My question here is whether this rhythm is ideal for users and from
maintenance burden POV. Should the update be triggered more often,
a la rolling release like each stable 4.4.x kernel update? Or twice
per month? Or better to be less frequently?
Release more often would allow catching a regression more quickly, and
this would make bug hunting easier. More frequent update is no
problem from my kernel branch maintainer side, too, but it'll
certainly increase the load for QA.
