While that's partially true, I want to highlight that this includes

exciting. More details on Friday (and to follow in the discussions and

R.Brown in his presentation on openSUSE:Next :
"How the heck are we going to build it"

1. Create and populate openSUSE:Essence
(I'm trying to avoid shared "core"
here since that was once used for Fedora already)

2. Create openSUSE:13.3 with a <path project="openSUSE:Essence"/>,
which means it can override packages with newer versions as

3. Cherry-pick (osc sr --no-cleanup) from openSUSE:Factory into
openSUSE:Essence as desired.

4. Cherry-pick from openSUSE:Factory into openSUSE:13.3
as desired, much like it was already done for the time
between branching off openSUSE:Factory and releasing a
new openSUSE:x.y.

When to have the first release of openSUSE:13.3

Whatever floats.

In particular though, regarding package selection, I do have
the following constraints:

- no downgrades relative to the versions that already were present
in 13.2, even if that means that converging to openSUSE:Essence
takes longer.
I am not going to accept the backstep from kernel 3.16 to 3.12 :-)

- kernel and glibc shall be refreshed for releases.
