So all SLES users have these options:
> - verify if SuSE maintains their SP 2.5.5. package and backports all
> security patches. If this is the case we could downgrade to 2.5.5. -> will
> there be compatibility issues with currently used IdPs or has the API
> between SP and IdP been held stable so that there won't be any
> communication protocol issues?
> - convince SuSE or someone else to maintain a repository with a current
> SP-versions
> - hope that a consortium member also needs these packages (I just learned
> that our membership to the DFN doesn't make us a member of the shibboleth
> consortium
> )
> - migrate our servers and workflows to RHEL or CentOS as they are the only
> distributions with ongoing official support (which would be a pretty though
> task considering the deadline 2020)

..or run your required services in Docker containers on your chosen OS ?
