[opensuse-factory] Submissions to openSUSE:Backports project
Hi all,

I wanted to clear up some confusion around the Backports project on OBS. As you
know Backports (also know as PackageHub by its consumer name, provides packages for Enterprise users that does
not exist on on the SUSE Linux Enterprise releases.

First of all, thank you for submitting to Backports, we appreciate it! But
please consider two things:

1. Please submit to the lowest compatible release. If your software builds/runs
perfectly on SLE12 please submit to openSUSE:Backports:SLE-12 . If you need
features from SP2 it's perfectly fine to submit to
openSUSE:Backports:SLE-12-SP2, but unless you need updated libs etc. try to
target the minimum release.

2. Please never submit to :Update project as these only exist for internal
purposes and not published.

If you want to know more about the Backports project, please see

Thank you!
