I'll take it as a compliment that you thought I was from SUSE. :)

I hadn't heard of Leap before.  I took a look, and that could work.

To be clear, we are talking about the 42.1 / leap references from 
https://hub.docker.com/_/opensuse/, right?  The Dockerfile says it's 
maintained by Flavio, so I'm guessing that that right one.

And from what I can see, 42.1 would be a match to SLES12 SP1 (no match 
for SLES12 GA from Leap, I guess, but hopefully that doesn't matter).
