There was a recent post on reddit
that made us take a look at how to present our lifecycle page
(https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime) and info to be added to the marketing
of Leap 15.3.
There were several comments on reddit that can be summarized as there is
a lack of clear information on how long the lifecycle of Leap 15.x will
be going forward. When the info on https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime was
originally written, there was some clarity on major versions lasting a
minimum of 36 months. We know Leap 42 and 15 exceeded that lifecycle. It
looks like we're at a point where we evolved and need to provide a bit
more clarity for people based on the reddit comments
I propose we change the lifecycle page to include the following
sentences and include the info in the marketing of Leap 15.3 and beyond
(for the foreseeable future):
Leap *Major Release* (15.x) extends maintenance and support until a
At present, a successor has not been declared; Leap 15's lifecycle fully
aligns with SUSE Linux Enterprise.
There is a projection as of March 2021 that Leap 15 will extend to Leap
Both major versions of Leap 42 and 15 were supported more than 36 months.
Any thoughts, changes, removals or additions to the above sentences.
