openSUSE Leap 42.1

Tja en dan komt er in ene een versie
openSUSE Leap 42.x

Zie onderstaand bericht. Moet wel even wennen aan het nieuwe versie nummer 42.1
Of is het de naam Leap. Hoe zit dat eigenlijk met die naam geving in openSUSE.

We felt that Leap, with reference to motion, i.e. how the distribution
moves forward, provides a nice contrast to Tumbleweed. It also
represents that we are taking a leap to get there.
It does not cast is into a mold that would set the precedence of
openSUSE <plant_name> which we think would have encouraged a regular
debate as new <plant_names> were considered for each product or
release to go with the theme.
Finally it leaves the door open for plenty of options should there be
other efforts to create an openSUSE release based on Factory snapshots
at some point in the future.

As far as the version number is concerned we concluded that 42 is a
great starting point due to the historical reference in the project.
It’s quirky and we felt it suits us well. We deliberated other options
such as starting at 1.x or some other arbitrary number such as 22 but
we preferred 42. Additionally 42 has already gotten some notoriety and
thus we might as well stick with it. In the end we all know the number
is more or less arbitrary and the important point is that it increases
going forward :wink:
