Re: [opensuse-packaging] suse_version handling troubles/solutions

Given the roadmaps I have seen suse_version can cope
with the roadmap:
1315 = GA
1316 = SP1+

Some time ago I was (somewhat imperiously) told that
distinguishing between SLE service packs is wrong.

If I remember correctly the reason behind is that
a package e.g. for SLE11 must be installable in
SLE11-GA and in any SLE11 service pack.

This is confirmed in
ServicePacks cannot be distinguished.
SLES11 SP1 sets exactly the same variables as SLES11.

Accordingly there will not be 1316 for SLE12-SP1.
SLE12-GA and all SLE12 service packs will have 1315.
