I assume "updating from previous releases" means in practice
"updating from openSUSE 13.2"?

Regarding "releases" (plural): Is "updating from openSUSE 13.1"
officially supported?

Well, I'm not sure talking about "officially supported" makes
sense in the context of openSUSE :-) From a technical PoV upgrading
from 13.2 has a higher chance to succeed than from older releases.

But I understand it means that Bugzillas on upgrade from 13.1 issues
will not be closed directly.

Another point here is differentiating between a zypper dup and a boot
dvd and choose upgrade methods (online/offline). The former is very
possible that fails, the other typically works (I'm not thinking
specifically of Leap, but of two versions jumps).

Regarding "updating from openSUSE 13.2":

I think all packages that come from SLE12 and have a lower
version that the one in 13.2 potentionally need special attention
because in those cases a version downgrade happens when updating
to Leap.

A lower version doesn't mean that it's causing problems on upgrade

No, but people should know about their existence, or they may be
disappointed if they find out after upgrading.
