After the branchpoint there is only Tumbleweed
and not Tumbleweed-11.4
and later Tumbleweed-11.5 and so on.
I hope I got this correct, Greg ;-)
it's like this I understood :-). Tumbelweed will be in sync with
openSUSE at (openSUSE) release time only :-)
And maybe not even then. Factory goes into freeze for a couple months
prior to a release. If a package goes stable in that time, I assume
it could go to Tumbleweed during the factory freeze time, and thus
Tumbleweed would be ahead of a release even on the very first day.
That's what a rolling release is. It's why Debian's Unstable or Testing are
NOT rolling release distro's (some ppl use them like that). They freeze during
debian release freeze time (more like an ice age if you ask me).
Tumbleweed will be a true rolling release like Arch and Gentoo offering, but
build on top of an easy to use distro. Which means that while I will surely
recommend it to more technical users, we WILL get a larger share of not-so-
technical users on Tumbleweed than Arch or Gentoo have. We'll therefor also
have a bit more of an obligation to make sure it doesn't break in horrible
