As a long-time OpenSUSE user and who also used Tumbleweed for a year, I 
can only recommend focusing on the stable branch. Tumbleweed is changing 
too much. As a result, my system has often been broken. For this reason, 
I have switched back to the more stable Leap branch and do not regret 
this step in any way.

I think that we are well advised to create Cinelerra only for the stable 
Leap branch, because problems with a rolling release operating system 
are not uncommon. Our resource management strategy requires careful 
consideration, so I think we could focus our resources on more important 
tasks. Therefore I can agree with the previous speakers.
