[opensuse-factory] New Tumbleweed snapshots being delayed
Dear Tumbleweed users,

You probably already realized that there has not been any new,
published Tumbleweed snapshot for a couple days (last one published is
20170913 for now).

The reason for the delay are the changes in the glibc package, where
libnss_nis and libnss_compat have been split out into external
packages. Those packages in turn are now linked against an IPv6-
supporting RPC implementation (TI-RPC instead of Sun-RPC).

It works fine in all scenarios where the upgrade happens using
'zypper', but upgrading using YaST (boot from media, select upgrade)
from 'any release' to Tumbleweed gets it wrong (it does not follow the
exact same settings as zypper dup does). The issues such an upgrade
would introduce are many and widespread, so we could not even 'just
document' on how to get out of it again (just installing packages in
plus won't work).

The people with 'the right powers' are set on the bug [0] and are
discussing and evaluating the right approach forward - and once a fix
is ready, we will try to integrate this asap into 'the Factory', have
it tested, tested, tested and hope to give you a new snapshot soon
again.

Submissions are all normally staged/reviewed/accepted and we still test
daily snapshots. Hence, as soon as there will be a snapshot released,
it will be a collection of things that happened in the days since
September 14th.

Thanks for your patiance,
Dominique
