Re: [opensuse-factory] O Factory - Where art Thou?

Back in the old times some people inside SUSE thought of following
the Debian testing way. The road block then was the inability
to track bugs filed against a package. To recap how Debian
testing works - a package update gets pushed to "unstable", then,
if no bugs against it appear for $X time, it gets automatically
pushed to "testing" (if all dependencies it has at this point
can be satisfied there - mind that Debian has a lot more versioned
dependencies). We still don't have a "package" field in bugzilla,
so copying this scheme 1:1 doesn't work.

You of all should know best that a bug free gcc version is *not* ready
to be integrated into Factory, so I don't see this as a good approach.

But we don't have to re-invent the wheel, no?

The closest thing to Debian testing we have is openSUSE
Tumbleweed though it's a very manual process there.

But isn't the proposal to have a Tumbleweed for Factory?
You either misunderstand what Tumbleweed does or Factory's role in
general. Tumbleweed is an addon repo for a stable release that has
several uptodate components that are updated frequently while Factory
is a rolling distribution integrating new technology all the time.

So a "Tumbleweed for Factory" does not make sense in my world.
