Feature Planning 15.5

Jump to: navigation, search

This is a page to keep track of early Feature requests for openSUSE Leap 15.4

Leap 15.5 will accept new features during the entire Alpha and Beta phase. RC is when we start accepting only important bug fixes. https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Roadmap

15.5 is planned to be a very conservative release. As we're now developing openSUSE:ALP/Workgroups openSUSE ALP

Deadline for SLE 15 SP4 Submit requests

How can I make submit a request against SUSE Linux Enterprise?

So you have an approved feature in code-o-o (respective Jira) or a bug that you'd like to fix.

First, check with osc meta if it's really a SLE package. The following example shows that Leap 15.5 inherits bash binaries from SUSE SLE 15 SP3 Updates, which is also where we need to send the submit request.

 $ osc meta pkg openSUSE:Leap:15.5 bash
 <package name="bash" project="SUSE:SLE-15-SP3:Update">
   <title>The GNU Bourne-Again Shell</title>
   <description>Bash is an sh-compatible command interpreter that executes commands

User can either rely on Submit request redirection to a proper package origin. Or force the destination project. Please do not use osc mr as this would always create request in openSUSE:Maintenance project, which will not work for SLE.

$ osc submitreq openSUSE:Leap:15.5 bash
$ osc submitreq SUSE:SLE-15-SP4:Update

More information about project structure can be found in openSUSE:Packaging_for_Leap.

suse-sle-reviewer review

Next step is that somebody from openSUSE:Suse_sle_review_team triggers manually on his machine osc jumpreview and either approves (mirrors) or rejects the change with reasoning.

Missing issue references

The most common reason to reject the change is a missing issue in the submit request (jsc#123456|bsc#123456|boo#123456) reference. SUSE Linux Enterprise has it as a hard requirement.

Jira issue references for Leap community features can be found in the metadata of the issue https://code.opensuse.org/leap/features/issues. Format should be jsc#ABC-123456.

Feature review meeting

The weekly feature review meeting is happening every Monday 15:00-15:30 CEST, 9:00-9:30 EDT. We discuss and process new requests in https://code.opensuse.org/leap/features/issues

Jitsi url: https://meet.opensuse.org/meeting

Where to find or report requests?

All requests should be available in https://code.opensuse.org/leap/features/issues Users could use pag tool (cli for pagure) to list requests on cmdline.

Feature then needs to be transferred manually to jira. And later approved by product management.

Who can create partner issues in JIRA

Userws lkocman, Pharaoh_Atem, ggardet_arm, oreinert, DocB should all be able to create JIRA feature in openSUSE partner project. Transition of feature to R&D and PM approval can be done only by openSUSE TAM (lkocman and his ba ckup gyr). Please reach out to them diretly (@suse.com email or irc) if you're in a hurry.
