This a landing page dedicated to the openSUSE Leap prototype "Jump" announced in April 2020 on opensuse-project@. Any feedback is welcome. Please make sure to read Portal:Leap/FAQ/ClosingTheLeapGap prior asking any question on opensuse-project@ or opensuse-factory@. Thank you

What is Jump?

Jump is a prototype of how could openSUSE Leap look like once we're done with current release of openSUSE Leap 15.2. It's not supposed to be a parallel supported alternative to the openSUSE Leap. See Portal:Leap/FAQ/ClosingTheLeapGap for more information. Jump is also an implementation proposal of the Closing The Leap Gap effort.

See following video from Adrian regarding the current status of Jump from the openSUSE Virtual Summit 2020 [1]. A related talk is also the Current and Future strategy for openSUSE Leap [2] which is also from openSUSE Virtual Summit 2020 2020.

Leap 15.2.1 details

The openSUSE Leap 15.2.1 Go-NoGo decision takes place on Tuesday 20th October 2020.

A list of package forks that need to be rebuild with is_opensuse 1 to preserve functionality. These packages are expected to be addressed in SUSE Linux Enterprise 15 SP3 and openSUSE Leap 15.3. This list can be also understood as a list of feature set differences in between openSUSE Leap 15.2 and SUSE Linux Enteprise 15 SP2 Update.
