[opensuse-factory] Leap 15 status update 20171220

Leap 15 is slowly getting into shape. Two weeks ago integration of
packages that were in 42 but not in 15 started. Of the ~6000 submit
requests most are in, including alternative desktop environments
like XFCE. ~1500 requests are left to sort out¹. Also, there's
finally a working NET iso. So for the curious certainly worth to
give it a try already.

Leap 15 followed the switch to openssl 1.1 which caused quite some
build failures. The efforts in Factory to get rid of Python 2 in
favor of 3 in the base system are also mirrored in Leap. Some
helping hands to fix resulting build failures in Factory² will help
Leap 15 too and would be highly appreciated. Feel free to just
branch packages and submit fixes back to their devel projects, no
special permissions needed!

With all the heavy changes going on, the previously targeted release
date early in the year unfortunately turned out to be too ambitious.
A release in May looks more realistic at the moment. We have to see
how things progress next year though.

As soon as the remaining requests are down to a reasonable amount,
semi-automatic submission of new packages from Factory will start.
If you are a package maintainer watch out for review requests you
have to take a decision about.

If you have any questions or need help with some submissions, feel
free to contact the release team³.
