This is a task to go through rejected Closing the Leap Gap features and make sure that we create a fork for openSUSE:Jump:15.2 where applicable.

Dropping feature from SUSE Linux Enteprise will directly result into dropping feature in openSUSE Jump and future Leap versions. Unless we decide to fork the package in openSUSE Jump (and future Leap versions).

SLE-12161 actually is SLE-12162

shim is another topic... the problem is we have to stay with SLE's shim...
the whole chain, shim/grub2/kernel must to use the same signkey
if we rebuilt shim in opensuse, I don't think we can uses opensue key to verify SLE signed grub2
SLE-12161 actually is SLE-12162

this is also something we can't do it in Backports after talked to Ismail, they have problem for those HPC pacakges esp. openmpi stuff

we probably have to rebuild all HPC packages in Jump

Rest of 8 rejected features were either that package used is_opensuse only for legacy version check or a duplicate of some higher-level feature.

#4 Updated by lkocman over 2 years ago

I'll keep this feature open to track any other features that might get rejected in the future.

#5 Updated by lkocman over 2 years ago

SDL2 integration with qemu was rejected (SLE-11662). I did email opensuse-project@ and opensuse-factory@ with deadline for usecase until the end of the week. I'll revisit issue on Monday and either fork the package or drop the feature from Leap.

python-oauth2client feature unification was rejected by SLE Product Management.
We want to keep django support in Leap therefore let's fork and rebuild the package.
