    "Fools rush in"...
    With 750 repos make that weeks, years .....

    Why not talking about the packages first ... and find out which repos would be needed?

    You are going the wrong way.

    If you want to simply have all packages downloaded, what you have to do
    is set up a (local) mirror.

    Well, you need to learn scripting to do any of that, and maintain it
    when things change.

    I simply ignore old unread threads, I just look at those watched threads
    that display in black or underlined, it, not fully read. Much fewer threads.

    Then if I'm bored, I go back in time.

    I have to do that, because at home I use the desktop, and on the road
    the laptop. When I switch machines, I no longer try to sync both, takes
    a lot of work.


    Hum... I wonder how to do the equivalent via web. No way to mark posts
    as read.

    Same via web; "watched" = subscribed.

    Not a problem via web. After search on New Posts or Today's Posts, having read and/or subscribed those of interest, you just Mark Forums Read. The forum's system takes care of the sync, if logging in with same id from another DE/system/machine.

    Ah, yes.

    Some times I read the forum via web, a particular thread, and in the
    thread I do not know what individual posts I have read and which not.
    Maybe displaying in linear order, but I use the threaded view, or the
    hibrid view. The posts I have read already do not have a mark or a
    different colour.

    Currently I can't try: the web is prohibitive when your ISP limits you
    to 500MB/month :-(

    Yes. I gave up on threaded/hybrid viewing way back. The thread viewing window is too short for purpose! As you point out, there is also no marking of read/unread.

    Please can the NNTP gurus start a thread of their own (in General Chit-chat or so) to discuss how you can make the most of NNTP on these Forums. You are terrible off topic here

    As the OP wants to add ±750 repos, I guess that suggesting YaST for this deserves the same remark as the wish to add those repos (or the earlier whish to install all software): "there is no sane reason to do so."

    There is no sane reason for adding 750 repos, whether zypper or YaST is the weapon of choice. A normal user wouldn't want to be managing, installing, and updating with five percent of that number. That realization may come earlier through using YaST.
