    Question Obsolete Packages

    Hi!

    I'm new in OpenSUSE and I wanted to know if there is a way to report when a new version of an application/driver/whatever is available, so the maintainer could update the correspondent package. In Arch Linux they provide a mechanism: Pkg: man-pages - Arch Linux Package Details You can click 'Flag Package Out-of-date' so you can send a message to the maintainer in order to inform him about a new version of that package.

    For example: SDL_gfx package from the OpenSUSE repositories is out of date (version 2.0.17, but 2.0.18 available from Home of Ferzkopp - SDL_gfx), where could I report this?

    Is there something similar for OpenSUSE?

    Thank you in advance

    PS: I'm Spanish, so I'm sorry about my bad English

    Package upgrades are issued via the community repos. Generally, the official openSUSE packages only get security updates between major releases
