Since which openSUSE release is it supported BTW?

To be on the safe side I would not use it because it depends
on the package installation tools on the target system where
the binary RPM would be installed if 2.02~beta1 is newer than 2.02
or if 2.02~beta1 is older than 2.02, see


Currently I do not have openSUSE 12.x systems running so that I cannot
test the behaviour there.

The link that Jan provided stated that it is in rpm 4.10 and backported to 4.9.1 for openSUSE 12.2.
