Make that 2.
We run SLES on Z and RHEL on X.  Life would be easier if that weren't the case.

SLES packages are, in our experience, not always the most up to date... I'm not sure how much of that issue is due to the architecture though.  YMMV.

I more or less said that yes, I'm trying to drop SUSE. The OP makes...exactly one person I know about using it, and add to that 12 is the only one left that would be implicated, and that's out of date anyway. We need to get the packaging moved off the OBS, and including SUSE long term will be a hassle with very little return on the investment in time.

If a member indicates they still need it, that would matter, but the member that asked for it originally before membership existed was clear they no longer do.
