[vbox-dev] OpenSUSE 15.3 is near End of Life

Is there anything stopping you from using the current VirtualBox package 
with OpenSUSE 15.4? I thought that with OpenSUSE (and SLES) the 15.x 
versions are supposed to be compatible, i.e. that the version is 15, and 
the .x is just the update level.

Of course I know that compatibility can't be absolutely perfect with bug 
fix packages, but the chance should be very high that VirtualBox works. 
If it does it would imply that we're wasting time on creating a new 
build setup which doesn't change anything.

The situation should be very similar to RHEL/OL, for which we also just 
do one package.
