The Leap Release Team/Factory maintainers took some liberties and
threw together a pile of packages in order to get Milestone 1 out, in
order to get development rolling (otherwise we'd have had a milestone
that barely exceeded the minimal system, no X, no GNOME, no nothing)
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.
And they might have picked the 'wrong' version for Leap, they were
just trying to get something put together that worked, they won't be
the ones responsible for maintaining the packages for the lifespan of
