Dear Tumbleweed users and hackers,

During this week, we sweat some blood. Not only was it really hot here, but we also had a gap in the snapshots delivered. Turned out that the update to SELinux 3.4 worked in most cases – but not so well with containers. We stopped rolling for a few days to figure out the fixes for that one issue before merging other, large changes. Nevertheless, we still delivered 6 snapshots this week (0616,0617, 0618, 0619, 0622, and 0623).

The major changes delivered in the last week include:

  • Linux kernel 5.18.4
  • Mozilla Firefox 101.0.1
  • KDE Frameworks 5.95.0
  • KDE Plasma 5.25.1
  • Gimp 2.10.32
  • Inkscape 1.2
  • LibreOffice 7.3.4RC2
  • NetworkManager 1.38.2
  • krb5 1.20
  • Samba 4.16.2
  • SELinux 3.4
  • Redis 7.0.2
  • Mesa 22.1.2
  • Sphinx 5

Ok, looking at that list, it seems to be no wonder it got heated, when combined with the SELinux issues. But it worked out pretty well in the end. The staging projects are currently not overflowing, but a few things are still in the queue:

  • systemd 251.2
  • Linux kernel 5.18.6
  • rpmlint: some work to detect more of the common errors. This will result in a few packages failing to build, but detecting those errors is worth it.

Regarding build failures: in openSUSE:Factory, we currently have 192 build errors reported. Any help in getting those fixed is appreciated.
