In the linux kernel, Linus has imposed a rule that if you add or

responsible for making sure the issues are resolved before your
work is accepted into the kernel.

This is 100% limited on the 'internal code' of the kernel...
Which is also the case for systemd: if you change the code, the
internally needed modifications are to be done by you.

To complete your analogy with the kernel: 3rd party modules can break
with every single update or RC-release... nobody from the kernel
maintainers will care. And as such: the analogy does not make sense.

On this list we are 100% openSUSE internal. If kernel 3.x breaks
fundamental things in openSUSe then things needs too be fixed before
releasing the kernel package update.
