No, it's not only Detlef's demand, but that of many packman users, too.
We even get many requests for packges for openSUSE Versions, that are
out of maintenance.

I fear there would be some resistance to changes here, although I would
prefer to do packaging similar to openSUSE:Contrib with freezing the
repo with each openSUSE release, too.
