[opensuse-factory] Some thought's on standard openSUSE patterns.

I know it's a bit too late for the upcoming leap release, nevertheless...

First: The standard installation with KDE as default desktop leads to a
mixture of old and new software.

- Why do openSUSE still uses Apper as package manager. Apper is discontinued
by upstream development.
- Why ist KDEPIM4 the default while KDEPIM5 is in the repos.
- Kleopatra is ported to KF5 while KGPG not. Why not deliver Kleopatra by
default?
- KDE Plasma 5 has an integrated audio-applet (plasma-pa). Why openSUSE has
KMix also pre-installed?
- openSUSE prefers the unmaintained Kopete. Why not the up to date KDE-
Telepathy?
- IceWM? Realy?


Secondery: OpenSUSE delivers a very bloated standard installation. The
question which audience openSUSE Leap has.

- Do the Users need android-tools by default?
- Do they need a semi-professional photo-suite like digikam? Gwenview should
cover most needs.
- How many users are really need a professional image editing tool like GIMP?
- Why should KDE-Users need GNOME-Tools like gnomeonlineaccounts or system-
config-printer?
- Why do openSUSE install by default a bunch of lib32-Packages on an 64bit
system?
- Do normal users need an mailserver like postfix?

P.S. Sorry for my bad English.
