[openFATE 314840] Upgrade user configured repositories on version upgrade
Feature changed by: Mário Castanheira (SpeccyMan)
Feature #314840, revision 3
Title: Upgrade user configured repositories on version upgrade

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Important

Requested by: Xan VFR (evanarkisto)
Partner organization:

When upgrading OpenSUSE version, it would be nice to upgrade user
configured repositories versions accordingly. Now, upgrading deletes
all previously configured repositories and sets default version

How do we know that there are repos available for newer version of
openSUSE and whether have the relevant packages? openSUSE maintainers
can ensure that you will always have OSS,Non-Oss,OSS-Update,NonOss-
update.Who will ensure that other repos are available for newer
versions of openSUSE.

+ I too agree this would be a nice addition!
+ Has to the problem raised by v.v., i think that if the repos contain

+ for that number on the string (e.g.: search for 12.2), replace it with
+ the one of the current version (e.g.: replace it with 12.3) and check
+ if the URL exists. If it does, then it should migrate the repo, if not,
+ deactivate it However this is just my "relatively low programing
+ knowledge" talking!
+ This also makes part of what is asked in the " Easy Upgrade " feature
