I'm wondering if anyone has tried to install either of these two branches? Has anyone seen an official road map for SLE moving to either/both of these branches?

Is there a particular reason you want either/both of these new versions? For new/improved features, security enhancements, etc. ?

Given SLES is an enterprise product SUSE don't upgrade major versions of packages on a whim so they keep things stable, backporting fixes (and sometimes features) from later versions. Saying that, given both PHP and MariaDB are both available via modules (Web Scripting and Server Applications respectively) it's possible SUSE could package and release newer versions independently of a SLES release.

HTH.

An application that we utilize will be requiring both starting in late 2019. The application is developed on Redhat/CentOS, which is slightly more aggressive in keeping up with current branches of applications (MariaDB 10.3 went -stable in May 2018, PHP7.3 in December 2018). I've thus far continued the fight for using SLE over Redhat/CentOS, but I'm not sure how much longer I win that discussion.

I understand how SLES works, I've been using it since SLE9. That's why my first question was if anyone had tried it and my second was just about a road map.
I guess I'll just have to play around and see what breaks. I know opensuse 15.1 is already on php73, so maybe just adding that repo will work.

Hi
Use the SLE 15 SP1 repository, will not be supported of course....

That's even better! I don't expect support from SUSE in this situation, we just need to maintain support from the application developer. Thanks!
