There just seems to be a general FUD about change. So for example
"zypper dup" was there, but in 11.1 we don't commit solid behind it,

what you mean.. ?

The user base, don't think "zypper dup" is a supported upgrade method
from 11.0 to 11.1, nor and there is a fate entry on supporting a
"Debian like dist-upgradee".

and now for 11.2 in the fate entry, noone seems to be really sure what
work needs to be done to make it "just work" for most end users.

What has to be done is pretty clear, why you get that impression ?

The fate entry on the subject.

There's a big danger, that openSUSE will look staler and staler,

I think we are far from stall...

After 2 intervening Ubuntu & Fedora releases 11.1 will look stale. The
rough edges lead to unfavourable threads on forum and mixed reviews,
and those show in Google search for a very long time.

The KDE 4.1 with backports for 11.1 was nice, but that work seems to
have very short shelf-life, given the timing of KDE 4.2. The thread
proposes a way to make that less of an issue, and also planning to
re-issue ISO's would hopefully help those who found 11.1 wouldn't boot
on their machines.

So far the improvement to Factory updates, seems to be the step that
might lead to more testing earlier.
