“Previously openSUSE Leap was sharing the distribution package sources with SUSE Linux Enterprise, but built them separately,” according to the introduction of the survey. “As SLE stopped supporting 32-bit distributions many years ago, we have the option of continuing to rebuild the packages for openSUSE Leap on those architectures from sources, or to stop supporting those.
“We would like to understand our openSUSE ARM contributors and openSUSE ARM user base before taking any further steps. We really value your time, we don’t expect you to spend more than 10 minutes on this survey.”
The outcome of the survey will be:
- either continue supporting openSUSE Leap on ARMv7 in future releases (15.3 and beyond)
- or that ARMv7 remains an openSUSE Tumbleweed only option.
The 64-bit flavor (aarch64) is not part of this issue.
The survey has seven questions and is anonymous, but gives the option to list an email if a person is interested in being contacted by the developers. The survey ends on Nov 20th November 23:59. So, please go to survey.opensuse.org to fill it!
