Hi,

Milestone8 is not ready, there are some nasty issues. Most
prominently the new kernel throwing OOPSes without acpi=off and KDE
updates still don't work, so I won't release M8 in this state. How
much delay this means I can't tell atm, but thursday is still
possible.

I guess that means not much hope of having anything done about this
one:

You will have to fix the bug.


Me? I think I'll stick to just reporting regressions such as this,
thanks :-)



Stay with it, Per. The people Novell/MS has now kept to keep openSUSE
running have lost the plot :-( : a multitude of repositories for
this-and-that and run by this-and-that-person; without any explanation
for a user as to which repo. does what and why. Nobody is really in
control, and the whole thing is going arse-up.

And if you look at any application name in YaST2 Software Manager you
will see that each entry (from all the ones I have looked at) show the
entry, "Supportability: unknown".

Now, this is most telling because the YaST2 rpm itself, which I
understand is something written by the SuSE people for SuSE/openSUSE,
has this description (Supportability: unknown) attached to it!

The question therefore has to be asked: what *DO* Novell/openSUSE staff
contribute to the openSUSE distribution - apart from "You will have to
fix the bug"?
