    Default 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'
    (http://www.archlinux.org/packages/core/i686/man-pages/) 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    'Flag Package Out-of-date' so you can send a message to the maintainer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    For example: SDL_gfx package from the OpenSUSE repositories is out of
    date (version 2.0.17, but 2.0.18 available from 'Home of Ferzkopp -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' (http://www.ferzkopp.net/joomla/content/view/19/14/)), 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 'commuity repos'
    (http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/). Generally, the official
    openSUSE packages only get security updates between major releases.

    There is a 'search page' (http://packages.opensuse-community.org/) for
    commuity packages.
