The Unified Path Ahead For Building SUSE Linux Enterprise + openSUSE Leap
Up until openSUSE Leap 15.2 / SLE 15 SP2, the code was derived from Tumbleweed but went through different builds ultimately in forming the respective openSUSE Leap and SUSE Linux Enterprise distributions.
Now moving ahead, pre-built binaries from SUSE Linux Enterprise will feed into openSUSE Leap.
SUSE's Vincent Moutoussamy noted, "The ultimate goal on a project perspective is to make an healthy and self-sufficient ecosystem, and on a distribution level to have a good balance between an environment suitable for production and for innovation...Closing the Leap Gap project, what we want to achieve is to keep improving the efficiency of contribution to and from the community and the enterprise side. The future looks good."
