[opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed - Review of the week 2017/40
Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Week 40 was progressing nicely, with a new Perl version. Perl upgrades
are known to always cause a few hiccups because new versions keep on
getting stricter and stepping on the toes of lesser maintainer
packages. But thanks to a handful of contributors, this went rather
smooth (one snapshot was discarded in order to get more fixes in). In
total, we released 3 snapshots: 0929, 1001 and 1003.

The snapshots included these updates:

* Perl 5.26.1 (NOTE: $CWD is no longer in @INC, this breaks a few
* Linux Kernel 4.13.4
* webkitgtk3 (webkit1 for gtk3) has been removed (gtk2 variant is

The planned updates include:

* GNOME 3.26.1
* KDE Plasma 5.11
* Linux Kernel 4.13.5
* PostgreSQL 10
* rpmlint 1.10
* Mozilla Firefox 56

Just mentioning it again here: Tumbleweed is supposed to be kept up-to-
date by using “zypper dup”; any other method can potentially leave you
with an incomplete set of updated packages.
