What an argument is that, seriously? Every non-trivial piece of software has the potential to confuse people one way or another. What does it have to do with how frequently updates should be released?
And it was not even Friday! ;-)
It's the argument of the Leap release manager, who has a formal responsibility to encourage alignment between SLE and Leap - after all, every time something diverges it causes more work, for him.
Takashi, my own recommendation: if nobody complained about what you were doing so far, then it must be right, stick to it, unless YOU think there's a problem with it.
Takashi, my own recommendation is to favour reducing your work and the variance between the Leap Kernel and the SLE Kernel as much as possible. But I, like the rest of the community, obviously trust you if you think the additional work is justified. My only additional stipulation as Chairman would be to add that the communities expectation is that the Leap kernel is as reliable as, and is 'broadly compatible' with, the SLE kernel. Hence my original reply to this thread, which suggests mimicking whatever is being done in SLE.
