Thank you very much for that!

Special early releases in case of severe issues (like security issues)
help so very much to ensure all Linux distributions can provide clean
upstream compliant Ghostscript to their users where such issues are
properly fixed instead of awkward "patchwork" ( pun intended ;-)


Ghostscript 9.26 Release Candidate 1 RPMs for various openSUSE
and SUSE Linux Enterprise versions are available for testing
from the openSUSE Build Service development project "Printing", see

In general regarding installing RPM packages from the "Printing"
development project into a currently used "production" system see

Kind regards and have a nice weekend!
