And this is the key point. We have to decide for ourselves, what we want
to achieve with openSUSE releases. And if we go there, we have to live
with the consequences - i.e. accepting the patch madness SLE packages
can be.

Greetings, Stephan

Excuse my ignorance, being not that much impacted by SLE in my day life.
For making it clear to the community, I guess that some part of what happen
during a normal SLE cycle
should be published, so the community, knows what kind of consequences we
would have to live with.

What is madness?
Updating a package (like kernel 3.0 introduction) or never update something
and increase its patch numbers until it look like The Tower of Pisa?

I think he meant "patch madness" which I always can feel quite a bit
when an Evergreen release gets older (around after 2,5 years or so) and
you want to do security updates on the old stuff.
And this will probably affect openSUSE when we want to maintain
additional stuff on top of the SLE core (at least).
