I have openSUSE 11.4 and added repro for Thumbleweed to the basic repro’s.
As told me I had to do a zypper dup ones for the Thumbleweed-repro to bring system up to date. This all is okay but I have some minor questions:
In KDE I do not see an update-icon in the system-tray anymore: 11.3 had one.
Does this mean the auto-update function is disabled?
About "levels’ of repro’s: they are all 99, should Thumbleweed in my case
be more important: say 75 ( at least <99 ) ?
When I use zypper up I have apps that wants updates and some are “hold back”
Is this related to repro’s that do refresh but not install ?
Someone told me NEVER mesh around with zypper DUP, so he means ONLY use zypper UP. What to believe ?

It would make sense.

People should be aware that T. is a derivative of Factory, in theory more
stable - but it is highly experimental and as dangerous.
We have to be blunt with people that just “enable a repo” and expect things
to work, and us to be able to help if they don’t. It is a version of
factory, no longer the “Distro”.
Only people following factory closely can help, and nearly only the devs
know what they are changing, what works, what not. So the best place to ask
is their mail list.
