  • if you have questions if a fix is feasible for an update, set the state NEEDINFO maintenance@opensuse.org in the bug-report
  • the packager submits fixed packages.
  • the submission receives review from the openSUSE Maintenance team and, if the submission was not from the maintainer, from the maintainer.
  • the submission gets included in a testing repository and the patch-documentation will be prepared by the openSUSE Maintenance team.
  • after postive feedback by testers of the update-test repository the update gets released into the official main update repository of the particular openSUSE version.
Notes about security updates

Bug reports for security issues are supervised by security-team@suse.de instead of maintenance@opensuse.org. Such bug reports can also be recognized by the 'VUL-0' or 'VUL-1' prefix in the bug's subject. Apart from that the process is basically identical to normal bug fixes.
