The OBS:Server:2.8/openSUSE_42.2 packages seem to work just fine on openSUSE 42.3.

For testing, I just updated a fully patched 42.2 OBS appliance:

* cd /etc/zypp/repos.d
* sed -i -e 's/42.2/42.3/g' *42.2*repo (just update openSUSE repos, not OBS and not Tools)
* zypper -v ref
* zypper -v dup --no-r
  * select "keep obsolete python-yum..."

The resulting 42.3 based OBS seems to work just fine.
