    openSUSE: openSUSE Leap 15.0 has reached end of SUSE support
    Hi all,
    
    With the release of the last updates on Dec 3rd, 2019 the SUSE
    sponsored maintenance of openSUSE Leap 15.0 has ended.
    
    openSUSE Leap 15.0 is now officially discontinued and out of support
    by SUSE.
    
    The currently maintained stable release is openSUSE Leap 15.1, which
    will be maintained until end of November 2020. See https://en.opensuse.org/Lifetime
    
    Upgrading is easy. See the links below for instructions:

    openSUSE Leap 15.0 was released end of May 2018, making it 18 months of
    security and bugfix support.
    
    It was the fourth hybrid distribution which used sources from SUSE Linux
    Enterprise and from our community developers to bridge a gap between
    matured packages and newer packages found in openSUSE Tumbleweed.
    
    Some statistics on the released patches (compared to Leap 42.3),
    although 42.3 had 24 months of runtime. (Weighted is new*24/18-old)
    
    Agenda: current number (42.3 number / total diff / weighted diff 18/24)
    
    Total updates: 1662 (1734 / -72 / +482)
    Updates imported from SUSE Linux Enterprise: 1119 (994 / +125 / +498)
    Updates provided by community developers: 543 (740 / -197 / -16)
    Security: 700 (901 / - 201 / +32)
    Recommended: 937 (794 / +143 / +455)
    Optional: 25 (37 / -12 / -4)
    Feature: 0 (2 / -2 / -2)
    
    Fixed CVE-entries: 2218 (3181  / -963 / -224)
    Fixed Bugs (overall): 5458 (5355 / +103 / +1922)
    
    A huge thanks to our awesome packagers, community, and all involved
    people, who made the next great release possible!
    
    Your maintenance- and security-team
