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.

I do not buy the agrument that it breaks aggregates. When using aggregates
you already need to know VERY exactly what you are doing, because it can
get broken also very easily in other ways (eg. via adding a new dependency or
via package splits).

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

You can still build also against SP0 (SUSE:SLE-11) project and keep SLE_11 name.
IMHO only very few projects do need to use newer versions.

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