Terje, sorry for the late reply but all of my Cinelerra email went to Spam
today and then finally about 20 minutes ago I received an email talking
about your earlier email that I did not see.  Actually, I thought I had the
day off when I had zero email this morning but no such luck now that I have
moved my Spam to the inbox.

OK, we knew we were going to have problems with Leap because we had to keep
15.1 and now had to add 15.2 so both could not be called Leap15.  We
thought it preferable to have everyone get an error, rather than the users
who still had Leap 15.1 be confused and end up with 15.2 or vice versa.  I
do not know how long 15.1 will be around but End of Life is November 2020.
Sorry for this confusion.  I am in the process of correcting the Download
web page.

We had hoped most users would figure this out, just like you did ! Is this
a little unusual for Leap?  We thought that Leap 15 would just be updated
as a single entity so that it started out as Leap 15-0 and then Leap 15-1
is a simple update as would be 15-2.  But it turns out that 15-2 seems to
be at a different kernel version level.  Leap is kind of different than the
other distros and gives us a lot of problems quite frequently.

> However the 10-bit version is not yet available:
We will have to add that as we did not know whether to keep 15.1 at 10-bit
or not.  Now we know, so thanks for the information. I will let you know
when GG does that.

I do not quite understand what you mean by "the previous common /Leap uri"
but I think you mean "Leap15" -- as explained earlier, I think we can not
do that -- especially since you say 15.3 will be coming out in June 2021
and End of Life for 15.2 is after that on December 2021.  Is there a
problem splitting to Leap15.1 and Leap15.2?  We have had to do that over
time for Debian and Ubuntu since we started making builds.
