Good idea in general, but can we prefer the SLE packages when available, please?
In other words: Please start by creating SRs for the SLE packages not in Leap yet  - that makes maintenance a bit easier ;-) BTW: We are talking about ~500 packages here (~400 if you ignore sled-manuals_*, *-branding-SLE and similar things)
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.
Good point. If we don't think carefully about replacing SLE packages by Factory ones and just throw in more and more Factory replacements whenever we feel like it, we end up with something very similar to what old-style 13.3 would be: a stabilized Factory snapshot. While that would make many people happy, all the hassle about "Leap" would be in vain.
