Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

This week has been overshadowed a lot with Snapshots that did not pass openQA – in total, we have had 6 snapshots in QA – of which only 2 made it through and have been published. Of course, all the issues identified have resulted in relevant bug reports which the maintainers will be working on, fixing, resubmitting the packages that needed to be reverted, and then we move forward. After all, openQA does exactly what we want it to do: it protects you, the users, from getting broken snapshots.

So, as said, we published two snapshots (1016 and 1019), containing those updates:

  • KDE Gear 21.08.2
  • KDE Plasma 5.23.0
  • KDE Frameworks 5.87.0
  • Apparmor profile update for Samba printing subsystem
  • Gimp 2.10.28
  • Linux kernel 5.14.11 (5.14.12 was responsible for one of the snapshots being blocked)
  • Mesa 21.2.4

The staging projects are currently filled with:

  • KDE Plasma 5.23.1
  • Systemd 249.5
  • Linux kernel 5.14.14
  • Bison 3.8.2: breaks gdb
  • RPM 4.17: one fix for suse-hpc missing (Fix submitted to devel prj)
  • Coreutils 9.0
  • gpg 2.3.x: some openQA issues detected,
  • openSSL 3.0.0: no active progress
