Until that day, if you wish the openSUSE project to continue to

are kept as far away from official openSUSE channels as possible.

Dear Richard,

thank you for your time and effort to answer quickly. I don't buy your legal

Go to and search for »packman«. You'll get thousands of
hits, on an official page.

Legal arguments should be discussed in legal circles. If the attorneys of
regarded a discussion about packman as a risk, be sure, they would have told
us right on this list.

There is no difference between us discussing it here or there.

By the way, I don't want to discuss packman software here. I'd like to point
to the fact that a release of Leap 15 without an existing packman repo might
cause lower scores in reviews after release -- and I really would like to see
Leap 15 received as good as possible, like you and everybody else here.

Yes, reviews will certainly point that out. Internet will tell people to
avoid openSUSE 15. Unless solved in time.

I'm tired of explaining outside people why openSUSE doesn't come with
multimedia support out of the box (and they nail me as stupid for
defending openSUSE). But if I can not point them to the easy solution, I
will be out of words.

Cheers / Saludos,

Carlos E. R.
