[opensuse-factory] Tumbleweed - Review of the weeks 2017/42 & 43
Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

Tumbleweed has been on the roll for the last two weeks and, thanks to
all your efforts, a total of 7 snapshots reached the users since my
last review. The snapshots had the versions 1013, 1017, 1018, 1019,
1022, 1023 and 1025 as usual, some had more or less impact on your
daily work

The noteworthy changes are:

* Linux kernels 4.16.6, 4.13.8 and 4.13.9 (crazy, 3 kernels in 2
weeks!)
* LLVM4 has been reworked into a single libLLVM library
* LibreOffice 5.4.2
* Display Manager is no longer chosen via
/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager: YaST is simplifying and default things
like DMs are easier picked on a prioritization list based on installed
packages. Since the ‘Desktop selection’ had been reworked majorly, YaST
had a hard time guessing what the right value might be.
* KDE Applications 17.08.2
* KDE Plasma 5.11.1 (completion)
* Qt 5.9.2
* Samba 4.7.0

And as if that was not enough, there is, as usual things piled up and
‘almost ready to be shipped’:

* Linux Kernel 4.13.10
* KDE Plasma 5.11.2
* KDE Frameworks 5.39.0
* openSSL 1.1 as openSUSE’s default
* PostgreSQL 10

As a reminder, if you want to get started with contributing to
openSUSE, an easy entry point, besides reporting bugs, is submitting
(often) simple build fixes for packages that no longer fail in
openSUSE:Factory. An up-to-date list of current build issues can be
found at https://goo.gl/7gtBRy

Another thing you can keep an eye on is the InstallCheck report,
published at https://build.opensuse.org/package/view_file/openSUSE:Fact
ory:Staging/dashboard/installcheck – packages that are not installable
need some work (often it’s due to some build fails, sometimes just
missing/changed dependencies)

Cheers,
Dominique
