Please really do this time :)

This snapshot is exceptional in 3 aspects:

- it updates python from 3.6 to 3.7 and bash from 4.4 to 5.0
and both changes were far from painless
- we did a full rebuild of all packages (the last complete one
was in summer 2018)
- this is the first time since about 4 years that I was holding
the hand of the release process while the release managers
normally doing it are offline for various reasons.

So take extra care, it was done by amateurs :)

the "amateurs" appear to have done a professional job. tks

I did experience one hickup, btrfsmaintenance failed upgrade. looks like
rpm cound not complete removal of current package. stopped zypper,
cleared locks/flags, rpm -e <package>, resumed zypper dup, reinstalled
btrfsmaintenance (I am not currently using btrfs) and rebooted.

system came back up as expected and see no problems.

tks much for your continued efforts
