Hi @all

can we please stop with this "SLE_11_SP?" naming and stick on "SLE_11"
And the webui should not provide 3 prjs for SLES 11, just one "SLE_11"
configure with "SUSE:SLE-11:SP1" (at a miniumum)
This naming changes will break "_aggregate" packages.

why at a miniumum SP1 ?
- GA is not suppoerted anymore
- any build on SP1 should run on SP2 without any problems.

and what to do when SP3 is out ?
then use at a minimum SP2.

Without repeating the points I made several weeks ago (and together with
darix again today), just don't add SP2 repo paths to your "SLE_11" repo
but add the default SLE_11_SP1 and SLE_11_SP2 repos instead.

Outcome: No aggregates broken, no repos to be renamed (and pushed to
mirrors) which means no user's zypper repository configuration broken
and no binaries broken for SLE_11_SP1 users having installed SLE_11_SP2
libs or binaries from your 'SLE_11' repo.

Besides that, mls and me just checked it, there aren't many OBS projects
that have a 'SLE_11' repository configured like you propose. Even
devel:libraries:c_c++ has the correct setup by now ;-)
