I see the repos named "current" are just a link to the current available

installation I change the 12.3 repos to "current", won´t I get a rolling
release this way?

Kiind of, but a rolling release that only gets updated once every 8
months. Not what is normally understood.

Ok, I see. It would not be a rolling release, but would install the
current stable distribution. Just the Tumbleweed repo adds rolling
release software.

But, it would be a way to update the distribution, to change e.g. the
12.3 repos to "current", once 13.1 is out? This way you can update the
whole distribution to the current version?
