You may have noticed the hint that 'openSUSE 13.1 can no longer be built
by SUSE Studio. Please upgrade to a newer version.'

Yes, I know, it ran out of maintenance, but it is an Evergreen Version!
And it is the last long-term 32bit openSUSE - thats the reason why I
want to keep building for it.

Sure, we have 13.2 at the start, but the Studio template always caused
more trouble than the 13.1 version.

If anyone supports to keep 13.1 - please reply to this thread!

Thanks!

openSUSE 13.1 is not the last 32-bit release of openSUSE, 13.2 is.
The reason 13.1 is Evergreen is because 13.2 is still
supported.

Perhaps if you can give some examples of the problems you've
experienced with the 13.2 template they can be investigated and
then possibly resolved.

Just a minor correction here - 13.1 is the last long-term release, and
will be Evergreen - 13.2 is the last release, but won't be used in
Evergreen.

As I understand it, the Evergreen team intends that 13.1 be the last
Evergreen release, since openSUSE Leap 42.1 (and beyond) have longer
lifecycles, aligning with SLE releases.
