In any case those experiences together with reports from others just
paints a picture in my mind where I see some misalignment.
I'm not saying we are there yet but the direction is to something like:
Leap = SLE + community stuff
What I think that Leap should be:
Leap = SLE (with community modifications where the community/maintainer
wants it; in best case w/o breaking base compatibility with SLE) +
community stuff

What we have at the moment is close to 3, if you substitute "community/maintainer" with "community maintainer", ie if there is someone in the community who is willing to maintain it then they can have the discussion with the SUSE maintainer as they will be working together co maintaining the package anyway, for build system and core libraries or other packages that end up affecting other packages the answer is still more likely to be no, but for some packages that effect less other things or some groups of packages it is possible. However the community wanting something updated and not doing it themselves is less likely to happen, that would probably be asking the SUSE maintainer to do additional work in there spare time, and one of the core principles of openSUSE is that we don't ask people to do additional work, they do it if they feel like it.
