- Improve integration with SUSE Products: add support to create
Singularity images with SLE.
Make sure, the built binaries adhere to the packaging guidelines.
Newer SUSE versions use a different path for the RPM database.
When the installation succeeds by an installation scriptlet fails
zypper returns error code 107. Don't treat this as an error.
In order to specify a repository GPG key, add support for
multi line variables.
In order to specify a list of additional repos, add support
to 'indexed' variables.
Improve handling of SUSE repositires:
- For SLE, use SUSEConnect to get all product repos.

- Update to version 2.3.1:
This release includes a fix for a High Severity security issue on older
hosts, and other improvements and fixes to previous versions of Singularity.
