While openSUSE has a rolling release, which is constantly integrating new versions
and bugfixes, we also have releases where the main codebase is frozen and
we release bugfix and security updates via online updates.

This process has been established for a while and is coordinated by the openSUSE Maintenance

Also, last year a new release came with new and changed update origins, openSUSE Leap 42.1.
This release inherits some parts of its updates from SUSE Linux Enterprise 12, which
might be confusing at times.

This talk will offer a refresher on the maintenance processes and also some details you
as packager needs to observe, also especially in regards to Leap.
