Nothing changed with update repositories really. Internally updates are
prepared differently but this is transparent to the repos.

13.2 is no "LTS" version. If Leap 42 will be usable as kind of LTS for
you is something we will have to figure out with the first "service
pack" or update to 42.2.

This is no hard limit. It is a limit which was set years ago and a
minimum commitment from the contributors at this time.
So this deadline might change while I'm not that convinced it will.
Compared to the last Evergreen and the group of contributors we even
lost a full resource unfortunately.
So the final Evergreen EOL 13.1 will fully depend on more people
stepping up or not.
