    The DVD iso is a lot smaller than previous openSUSE versions.

    I've been testing since alpha releases.

    It is mostly all working fine.

    "yakuake" is missing. I hope that shows up at some time.

    I've been installing into an existing encrypted LVM. And that doesn't quite work. The installer does not create "/etc/crypttab". The easiest way to deal with this is to prepare your own "crypttab" before the install, and maybe put it in "/home". Then, during the install (while it is installing packages), use CTRL-ALT-F2 to get a command line. And then copy "crypttab" into place. It will be something like:
    Code:
    cp /mnt/home/crypttab /mnt/etc/.
    Then use CTRL-ALT-F7 to return to the graphic screen. If you get this done before it has finished installing all packages, then your install should work. Otherwise it is rescue time for rebuilding the "initrd" after creating "/etc/crypttab".

    Probably because not all packages from Tumbleweed are in yet...

    It will.

    It has been submitted to 15.0 (automatically) 2 months ago, but the request only got accepted 5 days ago:

    Probably slightly missed the last snapshot...

    The maintainer apparently declined the submission to 15.0, so it will not be in the release. (unless somebody would submit it manually and the maintainer agrees)

    The request is declined. So the package is not and will not be in Leap 15.0.

    It is still in Factory, but there won't be an automatic submission anymore as this one has been declined. And according to the decline reason ("per Petr, no go"), the maintainer ("Petr") doesn't want this package in Leap 15.

    Btw, "leaper" is just an automatic bot that automatically submits packages from Factory to Leap.

    Too bad. I predict that we are going to have a lot of inquiries about it.

    Is the SuSE release going to have it? If not this information should be added to the release notes. Yes?
