Here's a short note as to the status of some recent activity in the openSUSE:Tumbleweed repo:

  • kernel packages finally got updated to the latest 2.6.37 release thanks to some preload package help. If there are any problems with this, please file bugs, as these will also affect the 11.4 release
  • LibreOffice has been added to the repo. Any update problems please let me know, it might be a bit wierd with the OpenOffice_org packages being removed, but it worked for me in my testing.
  • I'm adding all of the yast2 packages from openSUSE:11.3 and openSUSE:11.3:Update in anticipation of a libzypp update, so you will see these packages update with no change at the moment, until libzypp is checked in. This was tested to work properly in the openSUSE:Tumbleweed:Testing repo previously and should all be safe.
  • aaa_base was added to the repo to get the updates that have been done in there to make this package "more sane".

Please read the wiki page for Tumbleweed if you have any basic questions about what it is or how to use it. Any other questions, please ask them on the opensuse-factory mailing list.
