We do actually have companies using TW, and we
could have more if we
published patchinfo for it since we had some interested parties
pending, but it would be cool to figure out so TW is a viable
Since January TW's kmail suffers from a bug regarding »umlaute«. If
receive E-Mails in German quite often you get »ÃŸ« and »Ã¶«.
That bug will land in Leap 15.2 soon too! Exciting times :D
The difference between Leap and Tumbleweed isn't in how stable they are,
but how fast you can get the bugs, and for how much
shorter the bugs
typically stay in the distros.
Isn't that a definition of relative stability (rate of change) between TW
Tumbleweed will land a fix as soon as
it's out there,
Along with potential new regressions making TW less stable from an overall
software behavior experience than Leap.
All software has bugs, and dealing with consistent behavior (including bugs)
over time can be better experience for the user than constantly adjusting to
Leap users might need to wait until the next rebase
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.
