what is the right way or place to discuss things like missing or outdated packages in the SUSE Packagehub aka openSUSE:Backports?
The wiki packages do not contain anything (or I missed it). There is only a single mail address on packagehub.suse.com which did not reply yet. I was hoping for a mailinglist, but failed to find one?
E.g., I noticed some packages are missing for SP4 that were available in SP3.
Or should these things be discussed here on opensuse-packaging?
For the most part SUSE Package Hub is incorporating packages for openSUSE Leap (maybe with a few exceptions). So probably the first place to look is whether the package still exists in Leap 15.4, it may have been dropped either because it no longer built against current Leap or no longer had a maintainer. This would be the main reason for it being dropped from package hub. In such cases the package maintainer is probably the best point of contact.
Thanks for the explanation. But my question was more whether there is a place to discuss these things. Or if this should be a "everyone asks the maintainers privately" thing.
If you have some packages that are in Leap but not package hub feel free to list them here and i'll see if I can raise it internally to find out why.
I'll do so in a separate mail.
Kind Regards, Johannes
