[opensuse-packaging] Opera package with Presto and Blink
Hi openSuse!
Currently we are stuck with an outdated version of Opera 12, the last
release of Opera with its own engine Presto and their included email
client M2. This package is called "opera".
Opera decided to drop Presto and use WebKit and now Blink, beginning
with Opera 15. The browser was re-written from scratch and misses
features many users don't want to miss. Long time there was no Linux
version. With Opera 25 there is an official Linux version available, it
is released as a x64 binary Debian package.
In OBS is a package for Opera 26, cf. home:XRevan86:non-free/opera.
XRevan86 requested several merges to the upstream Opera package, but
was declined, I don't now why.

I propose to keep the old Opera 12 package as "opera12" or
"opera-presto" and include XRevan86's package as a new "opera" package.

What do you think? Is there a reason not to do so?

Bye
Christoph
