The best would be: for everything the community translate, always use

I can understand your point of view, but it's not "as simple as that".

Agreed, I think a much better starting point is by filing bugs against
those translations in Leap and Tumbleweed that have been contributed
to openSUSE from SUSE

Remember, it's an equally valid point of view that SUSE is a community
contributor to openSUSE too..

who is to say that those translations are innately more invalid than
those from other community members?

Both points of view are valid, but nothing can be fixed in either
direction with concrete, solid, measurable items requiring actions

So, please, please, file the bugs


What if, as an hypothetical example, there is an translation error/new
strings in zypper that only affect Leap, but not SLE. The SLE
translators will fix it or not as it's out of they job scope?

SUSE are committed to ensuring that both SLE and Leap share as much
code and content that is practical, and that their contributions to
Leap via SLE are all of a high quality

So, firstly, a Leap-only bug from a SLE translation error should be
pretty much impossible

But if it did happen, I would expect the bug to be fixed

openSUSE 'going it's own way' should only be a last resort if all
involved haven't done our best to fix the other real issues that
triggered the problem.

Just for the records the pt_BR don't have all this mess, its just
different, both are correct and valid, but I prefer our... :-P
