Why was devel:languages:python/openSUSE_13.1
I think openSUSE_13.1 is Evergreen.
Of course you should watch the whole thing to get the larger context.
Okay i have seen it.
And when i understand right, i can not agree with it.
Richard speek from future stable package and i can he understand, but this is
not the point of view for me. And not my suit.
I live in the present and with distris 13.1, 13.2 and leap 42.1
When i need packages or create one i need it for those versions.
Tumbleweed and especially Factory is for me an 'by-product'.
So Evergreen is 13.1.
When i will use 13.1 i need package for 13.1.
And when i can not build these package, because other (for me now python) is
missing, i can not use evergreen.
So there is no need for evergreen.
Why it gives evergreen then?
The Evergreen team is not responsible for OBS repositories. We had this
so many times now that packagers just ignore Evergreen completely.
Somehow I even have the feeling they want to boycot it while I do not
really believe it.
Anyway while Alberto's talk from this years conference again showed that
our users like to have stable stuff and keep also running older
distributions for quite some time
I have the feeling that our contributors do not share this preference
and they run away from older things as soon as possible while there is
many times not even a technical reason.
Take my mozilla repository as an example: I was asked why I still have
repositories in there which are really out of maintenance and not
Evergreen. My answer was and is: "Because I can and it doesn't put an
additional burden on me. At some point it'll become a technical
nightmare. In that case I will have to drop them eventually."
