Baron and the VMs are currently running openSUSE-13.1, but 13.2 has been published three months ago. I have used 13.2 on several of my own systems without much problems, so I reckon it's safe to upgrade our infrastructure to it.
As usual, one interesting topic could be the upgrading of Postgresql (as newer versions of Postgresql are unable to read older DB formats, so an explicit dump/restore might be necessay). In order to simplify this, openSUSE has started to provide different versions of Postgresql as packages, so hopefully this will be easier this time around.
Another point of interest is that 13.1 introduced a problem with ssh logins using PAM being unbearably slow, which caused me to deactivate PAM for ssh logins. If 13.2 fixes the slowness (and my experience with my own server seems to suggest it does) it would be good to activate PAM again, as otherwise alternative/additional authentication methods like OTP wouldn't be possible to implement.
