Though I don't know how well "up-to-date" translates; it would be better
to have a single word rather than a hyphenated phrase to describe the

Sure. But which one? Current/recent/actual? I was even thinking of "cool"
but in the end I wasn't really happy with any of those.

So I resorted to "up-to-date" which is a quite familiar term. Not optimal but
at least straight to the point. ;)

But by talking early on in building "brand recognition" for Leap and
tying the name to the ideas of having current software and being

Being more current would set Leap apart from Debian, Centos and other

Richard Brown's idea of "Best of both worlds" puts more emphasis on
"community-innovations" - if I understand him correctly. And this might work
without the LTS-kernel.

But without that, I agree with jdd here - that if you specify just "The
