The Intention of openSUSE:Tools:Devel is really that of a more development branch. There are linked packages to contributed Factory packages, which may break at any time for example (and did). And I try out now actively newer versions of either new packages to be put inside or new features like putting hermes into the obs-server package.

It is like released, a branch and the main trunc. But since we link to factory sources also, it can break at any time.

I have noticed that already quite some people do use :Unstable in there local OBS. I do not want to disturb there circles.

As for the Harddisk space: I could switch off "publish" of the packages if that is requested.

Ah, you misunderstood me. I do not mean openSUSE:Tools specially, but more generally the OBS. The issue is not a specific problem of this project, but also targets others. So probably such an "grace period" for software releases would be a good idea.

I case you don't want to disturb the build process, it wont help. I more thought in terms of package users.
No, i think I didnt misunderstand you. It would be great, also there will be something like "security patches" on "released version" planned.

But we really need a developmet branch here also, because the beta versions (openSUSE:Tools:Unstable) are tested an have some quality standards (e.g. bugzilla entries are done on it), and I first need to find out 2 times per week which snapshot us useful (and the linked packages are linked to released openSUSE Versions, not against Factory). It is like the intermediate factory snapshots done. But as long as there is now snapshot, and people commit, it can be in inconsistent state. And that is what openSUSE:Tools:Devel is as long as there are links to factory packages and as long as I do not have feedback from testers for non SUSE versions for example. I do not only integrate "obs-server" here anymore, or "osc", "build" or the like from OBS Subversion repository.
