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.
I am the new maintainer of VirtualBox, and I definitely want the latest version (5.0.2) in Leap. Could you elaborate a bit more on the "just send a SR with the Factory package"?
The package on Leap was already created from FACTORY, but this seems outdated. You can see it like: % osc ls openSUSE:42/virtualbox _link # -> openSUSE:Factory virtualbox (77d630d45f0eca57819a71bfa2203695) UserManual.pdf VirtualBox-4.3.28-patched.tar.bz2 _constraints _service .....
I've heard that there will be no auto-tracking of FACTORY updates. Don't we have any smart check of the divergence between FACTORY and Leap (and some automation to notify maintainer)?
Oh, BTW, "just send a SR with Factory package" means like:
% osc sr openSUSE:Factory/virtualbox openSUSE:42
