Well, 3.5.3 seems to depend on wxwidgets >= 2.8.12 and this is not
easily available for 11.4

Tumbleweed is alive and kickin, but it moved on to 12.1 as soon as that
one came out (as announced from the beginning) and it will move on to
12.2 as soon as that one comes out.

So there's no tumbleweed for 11.4 (which would be pointless as it is
supposed to be kind of "rolling release" and why would one base that on
an old distro?)

Of course we could in theory build everything that's somewhere in the
openSUSE Buildservice again in Packman, however, a lack of man- and
computing power and network bandwitdh prevents that. And it would not
make much sense to duplicate all the excellent work done at the OBS.
