Hi there.

First of all thank you to the Packman team for your great job.

My first time here, I'm Gabriele Tettamanzi, an enthusiast openSUSE desktop
user, also known as gabriel_3.and I'm one in the mods of openSUSE official
subreddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/openSUSE/).

In these days there are some guys testing openSUSE Leap - I'm one of them;
they post on our subreddit asking for Packman repos and I'm suggesting them
to use the SLE12 repos, as I'm doing.

However it turned out from Richard Brown - openSUSE Chairman, commenting a
post of mine. that there's a Packman Leap repo built but not released for
public usage.

Please, may I kindly suggest you:

* if the packages are needing some more testing, to declare the new Leap
repos as experimental, give the community  a link to the repos  and let us
test them and feedback issues;

* if the repos are ready, release them even if the Leap release day will be
November 4th - we Leap early adopters are using other repos of yours, so
you will see just a first day updating peak, not a huge additional traffic.

I've no title to express other community members opinion, however I guess
we -are opened to any other early releasing solution you have.

Thank you so much for your attention to my words above.

Keep up your great job.

Truly yours,

Gabriele "gabriel_3" Tettamanzi
