yes, with Factory that open as it is now, Factory is the right way.
I had thought Factory was for "future development" - ie, the basis for
the builds that go into the "next release". Am I misunderstanding that?
Is there a problem with that?
Not a problem so much, but rather if someone's running on the "current"
release, having to go to the "experimental" area for a piece of software
that isn't in the standard repo seems like overkill.
The 'contrib' repo would seem to me to be a better fit. If I'm looking
to run brltty (for example - intentionally picked a package I didn't find
in OBS at all) on openSUSE 11.2 and someone's contributed it, I wouldn't
want to have to sub to a repo that gets me into the development repo for
11.3 - I'd want to stay on 11.2.
That's how I'm seeing that. Does that make sense?
Contrib is also versioned.
We currently have it for 11.2 and factory I believe:
