SDB:Tumbleweed Merger

tagline: From openSUSE

On November 4th 2014, the openSUSE Factory and openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling releases merged into a single openSUSE Tumbleweed rolling release

Warning Anyone using openSUSE Factory and openSUSE Tumbleweed before May 4th 2015 must follow the below instructions. Tumbleweed users must do this immediately in order to continue receiving rolling updates. Factory users have until 4th May 2015 to carry out these instructions

Migrating to "new" Tumbleweed

Please see openSUSE:Tumbleweed_installation#Repositories for instructions how to configure the repositories

Additional Repositories

The above instructions will remove ALL additional repositories you have configured.

You will need to re-add those you need, but please consider the following.

Users who are using additional "openSUSE_Tumbleweed" repositories from OBS are recommended to either stop using those repositories, or wait a few days to ensure the Build Service has had time sync up and has the packages built for the "new" Tumbleweed. We will be updating this wiki page once this has changed.

Users who are using additional "openSUSE_Factory" repositories should be fine, besides the obvious "name mismatch" which is obviously cosmetic. It will however get your packages on your machine while we get OBS to reflect the merger.
