[Cin] Cinelerra-GG packages build farm

Dependent on the available build capacity and resources of course, a 
good practice has been to support stable distro releases as long as they 
have long time system support (LTS). However new approaches and changes 

I.e for OpenSuse releases that I know, the free Leap 15.x has had 
benefit of being binary compatible with SUSE's Enterprise version (SLE 
15.x).  SLE in the future is going to be replaced by a new 
container-oriented SUSE's Adaptible Linux Platform (ALP) with focus on 
servers without inherent desktop.

Therefore the next Leap 15.6 June 2024, with 18 months support until Q2 
2025, will be its last release.
Leap on its side will be replaced by OpenSuse:SlowRoll with stabilized 
pull from the faster rolling OpenSuse Tumbleweed.
