The SLES cycle is not in my area ;)
In general we plan to have 2 year cycles, but review them together with
ISVs and partners.
Regarding SUSE Linux with the same codebase... If you find features lacking
in SLES but which are in SUSE Linux we definitely want to hear about it,
to improve upon our SLES package set.
(Of course for some of those we might have decided already not to include it,
but in general...)
