First day after Leap release, first day after branching SP1... first

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.


I thought that conclusion is to use leap branch only when neeeded.
There is more packages needed it like skelcd-control-opensuse or maybe
theme. So if we need to diverge, create branch, if not, then use only
SLE12-SP1 branch. Maybe I should document it in
