openSUSE Tumbleweed is a rolling developement release, which is 
constantly updated and always at the 'latest release'
So I aggree to concentrate the Cinelerra builts on the maintained, 
regular and stable production platform Leap, currently 15.1 and 15.2 
(next 15.3 expected June 2021). And I really hope also Cinelerra10bit 
will be continued ;)
