And no, evergreen is not an alternative (yet?). Although I appreciate the work the evergreen-team puts into it, in my opinion the patches are released way too slow there (any kernel-updates for 11.1 for the last security problems?).
Somehow I like to comment on that from the Evergreen perspective. Usually we can only prepare updates once we know they are needed. In general we know at the moment they are released for the other openSUSE distributions. That's a process issue I cannot really change. The kernel is a problem indeed. It's an explanation but doesn't make it better in the end though. But then again the updates are usually released pretty fast. What delay would be acceptable to you? There are examples where Evergreen released updates for 11.1 faster than they were for 11.2 and above. But that's also the exception.
I also miss a long term supported openSUSE release (that's why I started Evergreen) so we basically agree but this has nothing to do with Attachmate since the support lifetime was announced to be 18 months ages ago.
