If a package maintainer thinks that the Factory version should go into Leap even if [an older version of] the package is also in SLE, he/she can of course just send a SR with the Factory package.
Is there any page that displays all packages (and their versions) in openSUSE:42?
So far openSUSE:42 on build.opensuse.org just displays a few packages, not all.
So I assume that most of the package maintainers don't even know if his/her packages land in 42 or not. eg: I sent emacs-flim to openSUSE:42 and got accepted, but in openSUSE:42 I can't see it.
And if a packager wants to fix his/her package for openSUSE:42, he/she may encounters a dependency problem (actually happns to SLE_11_SP3/4 too), eg:
If I just got an unresolvable error about stuff like GeoIP-devel, maybe it's a wrong name, but where could I find the correct name?
For openSUSE:Factory, I can just visit software.opensuse.org or build.opensuse.org to search the package name and check the output RPMs.
But for packages coming from SLE, it's not possible. SLE doesn't have "development project" on build.opensuse.org, and have no public download repository.
Using `osc list -e SLE:12:GA` is one way, but it doesn't help with SLE_11_SP3/4 whose result is nil.
