Hello mirror admins,
I'd like to notify you about next weeks release announcement for openSUSE Leap 15.3
The final GM Build (160.3) including images is already for about two days on download.opensuse.org. You get notification now because we've just eliminated last potential ship stopper.
openSUSE Leap 15.2 retrospective showed us that hiding GM images causes more issues to mirrors than we'd like to. For this reason, we've decided not to hide GM images anymore.
Final Leap 15.3 images are already available here https://download.opensuse.org/distribution/leap/15.3/iso/
It doesn't mean that Leap 15.3 is GA as we aim with important maintenance updates on June 2nd when we'd like to announce global availability.
I hope that you appreciate our new release model, which should make your life hopefully easier.
As a side note, We're still making sure that download-o-o is in shape (currently few issues with appliances), however, iso and rpm repositories are final.
FYI: last year's retrospective here https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:15.2/Retrospective#.28In-.29Visibility_of_GM_build
This GA task is tracked as https://progress.opensuse.org/issues/76630
