So, for some packages, yes, they're already in Leap But you cannot rely on them to continue that for the rest of the packages in Factory.

If you're a package maintainer, the only way to be sure that the packages YOU want in openSUSE Leap are if YOU do it. :)
After some IRC discussion, just sending SRs is ok. As per https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:How_to_contribute_to_Leap , I attempted to do, similar to the suggested one,
osc sr --no-cleanup -m 'blah' openSUSE:Factory/ntl openSUSE:42
That then gets me
Warning: failed to fetch meta data for 'openSUSE:42' package 'ntl' (new package?) Server returned an error: HTTP Error 403: Forbidden Creating a submit request action with options requires maintainership in source package
So, I can't help but think of it as ironic asking developers to send their packages towards leap and then not be able to do so :p
