Huh? AFAICT, openSUSE 13.2 had predictable network interface naming and
Leap42 doesn't. (unless our opinions of "predictable" differ).

Leap 42.1 still has systemd-210 (and everything surrounding that),
like openSUSE 13.2.

But in Leap42 I get "eth0", in openSUSE 13.2 I get "enps0f1q4" ?

13.2 and 42.1 have that ominous patch entitled
1021-udev-re-add-persistent-net-rules.patch. TW does not.

Yet, 13.2 and TW are the ones where one can see the predictable enp*
interfaces. Go figure :-(

Leap is SLES-12 based and most (nearly all) customers and vendors of
SLES-12 had insist on using the persistent net rules. The predictable
naming scheme had resulted in a lot of complaints.

It should be noted that to respect those complaints was not my decision
but as SLES-12 is product for customers and vendors I can live with it.

This depends on the configuration of the project, that is this can
be changed by setting the suse_version != 1315.
