The new tumbleweed snapshots will continue to be
factory but we would ask you do not reply to them in order to report
issues / bugs. If a bug is reported that a package maintainer believes
will cause significant issues for most tumbleweed users ie not being
able to boot / login or severe data loss we still invite the maintainer
to post a warning to opensuse-factory but such issues happen very rarely
and as such we don't expect to see many such posts.
This will make opensuse-factory "mostly useless" for me and I will probably stop
reading it on a regular base.
I will not subscribe to a "-support" list.
As I had pointed out to a board member in person in Prague already, the current style of
opensuse-factory worked just
fine for me (maybe drop the flamewars).
If opensuse-factory is ever returned to its current modus operandi, then please someone
ping me, so I might start
reading it agin.
P.S.: I would be slightly interested in a description of the problem this change is
supposed to solve...
