[yast-devel] Branches for Leap
First day after Leap release, first day after branching SP1... first doubt.

We have assumed that the "Leap team" will take care of making sure that
our fixes for SP1 end in 42.1 as well. In that perfect world we only
commit to two branches on the repo (master and SLE-12-SP1). We submit
stuff from master to Factory and SP2:GA and stuff from SLE-12-SP1 to
SP1:GA or SP1:Update.

But there are corner cases, sometimes we need to fix something that only
affects Leap. The most obvious example is a YaST package that is only in
openSUSE but not in SLE (not 100% of the YaST Leap packages come from
SLE). Like this bug.

To me, it looks like we also need an openSUSE-42_1 branch in the
yast-control-center repo and maybe in some others. We can create them on
demand, since there is no automation involved and we probably need to
check from which commit branch in a case by case basis.

I hope packages coming from TW to be the only corner case for Leap. For
bugs in the SLE-12-SP1 branch that only affects Leap I hope the SLE
(maintenance) staff will allow us to commit the fixes there and release
maintenance updates as long as we don't break SLE in the process, even
if they don't fix any real SLE issue.
