There is a valid list for user questions regarding both openSUSE Tumbleweed and openSUSE Leap, it is firstname.lastname@example.org
make this even clearer, but really it should go without saying, as it has not changed in the 10 year history of the Project.
it changed since Tumbleweed become official
No it hasn't - opensuse-factory@ is still the development mailinglist of the openSUSE Project, opensuse@ is still the user/support mailinglist of the openSUSE Project
But it has and has not really been announced as changed. Originally Tw was considered a development/factory project and The Originator of Tw, Greg KH himself requested that discussion relevant to Tw be on the opensuse-factory list. No change from that stance has be made officially, or announced on opensuse-factory.
opensuse-factory@ as this Projects developer list and opensuse@ as this Project's user/support list is not a change
GregKH's Tumbleweed was retired when Factory and Tumbleweed merged, so Greg's statements should no longer be followed. When Factory and Tumbleweed merged, Tumbleweed ceased being maintained by Greg who would only pay attention to opensuse-factory. It is now a major distribution of the openSUSE Project.
This has been stated 'officially' numerous times by numerous people, including myself.
This was also recently clarified by Henne, our mailinglist administrator - http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-factory/2015-12/msg00136.html
So I'm afraid I respectfully have to disagree that this a change, and that the status quo hasn't been made clear
Henne has also recently slightly reworded the descriptions on http://lists.opensuse.org with clearer language to make it even more readily clear
Hope this helps
