I also do not understand this - and in hardware:sdr some packages have
copyright attributet to SUSE, some just author of package, some both.

Apart from this I fail to understand resistance to having hamradio in
Leap and Factory as seen in [1] - there is nothing preventing creation
of maintenance updates updating packages released in Leap if there is
sound reason for doing so, and for Factory - it is by definition kept
up to date.
