    Maybe a bit more emphasize on (the links to) what Tumbleweed is, is not and that it is not for real beginners. There are some threads on the forums that give a strong impression that people want to use it because they like the word Tumbleweed ;(. We can (and in the end are not willing of course) to stop them, but pointing to the information they should read first may have more stress then it has now. (my personal opinion).

    Hi,

    And won't it also be necessary to zypper dup --from Tumbleweed_All_of_Packman to switch vendor for the Packman packages?

    Warning: Tumbleweed is not recommended for new users: It's a new concept, a distro that is perpetually upgraded, and it's not been going for long, so there will be problems that new users simply can't cope with. Understand this: Tumbleweed is not stable. I will not be a bit surprised if I have to reinstall Tumbleweed when some bug causes a key problem, or a dependency issue or other incompatibility arises. If that could make you stressed, don't install Tumbleweed.
    Perfect! At least we can point to this when people start complaining, (but I hope they read it before starting to use it).

    question(s) regarding repositories going forward

    Once Tumbleweed is up and running what happens when new releases of openSuse appear or 11.4 is decommissioned? As one can't use 11.4 repos forever will there eventually be Tumbleweed oss, non-oss and contrib repos? Same for KDE/Gnome newer versions and various 3rd party obs repos? I assume for now just use the 11.4 versions of those obs repos.

    I myself used both with this: "zypper dup --from Tumbleweed --from Tumbleweed_All_of_Packman" but I used the -D option first to see if it would complain, and it didn't. And I made a backup image of root partition first. However I'm not at all sure of this dual --from option, being a newbie at "zypper dup" myself. I didn't want to advertise that command up front in the howto because I would need to explain the options "--repo" and "--from" and it all looked like being a bit too wordy.

    Anyone have thoughts on that?

    Well, come November, we'll have openSUSE 12.1 as a basis for starting Tumbleweed. Those who are already based on 11.4 can keep right on tumbling I suppose, and it even will be possible in theory to start from either 11.4 or 12.1. But the expiry of 11.4 is a long ways off, don't stress about that right now. After all this is a very new process, only just getting into testing.

    And for a user who is experienced enough to use Tumbleweed, reinstalling openSUSE is no sweat. So I say, wait and see how the devs have organised it all in 12 months or so.
