as we've started the development of openSUSE Leap 42.3, this question
Should we -

Either this -- I really love the SLE-openSUSE symbiosis here. The kernel
B) fork an own branch based on 4.9.x?
Hell, no! This was how openSUSE 13.2 (IIRC the number) ended up almost
unsupported. The support for the kernel was really, really bad. And 4.9
won't be an LTS kernel too, AFAIK.
I thought Greg wanted to make 4.9 an LTS:
Not sure whether he changed his mind since then. kernel.org
doesn't declare 4.9 as LTS yet.
And, in the above, I didn't mean to stick with 4.9, but referred it as
the latest LTS kernel. So, read it as -
B) fork an own branch at the next LTS before 42.3 release
It'll be in a similar situation like Leap 42.1 which has 4.1.x-based
kernel. It's less pain than openSUSE 13.2, while its support status
is still far worse than Leap 42.2.
