Leap users might need to wait until the next
packages, which sometimes happens every year, sometimes every two years
and sometimes not until the next major version which is 4 years.
So we no longer do bug fix patching against Leap releases? What are the
update repos used for then?
If you referring to stability in the sense of software not crashing. I hope
we still fix those classes of bugs with Leap updates.
Yes as a starting point Leap gets any such fixes from SLE and openSUSE
maintainers can use a maintenance process similar to SLE's to submit
fixes into Leap which does happen regularly. Given that generally this
just involves backporting the fixes and not adding new features you
could argue it normally makes everything more stable, although
occasionally a backport misses something which can cause bugs, but from
experience this tends to be less then in new features or you get a
fairly obvious break.
