There was quite a long delay when moving to opensuse, which is understandable.
The interesting question is, if it will be possible again to run a SLES
and the SuSE version with the same codebase until the next SLES is released.
With SLES9, this was not possible, because 9.1 was dismissed before SLES 10
Since we try to run SLES on the important servers and the matching SuSE version
on all other hosts, this was a problem. We need some time (2-3 months) to
plan and perform the upgrade on all servers, so I really hope that 10.1
will be continued until SLES 11 has been out for some months.
For that to work, the SLES release cycle should not be longer than about
1 1/2 years. Can you say sth. about the planned release cycle for SLES?
