#10 Improve user experience: Automatic changing repos for new target version & run dup
Opened a year ago by lkocman. Modified a year ago

his is an action item from https://en.opensuse.org/index.php?title=Feature_Planning_15.4

15.3 struggled with supplying additional update repositories post GM, and one of the ideas was to use service (SLE style) to deliver a list of repos applicable for the system.

Let's discussion this idea a bit more here.


Neal: We have rpm-repos-openSUSE-Leap to offer this capability for DNF users. Zypper/YaST could be adapted to also source repository configuration from this package.

Details about how this works in Leap 15.3 are noted in the Features page for 15.3: https://en.opensuse.org/Features_15.3#DNF_package_manager

Lubos to find some stakeholders for this request.

This is not a SLE feature, so removing SLE tag.

Right, but we might need changes in Yast/zypper which are SLE packages.

That makes sense. Tagged accordingly.

I read this as a GUI based 'zypper dup' tool for less experienced users. Sounds like a very good idea to me.

And as goodie on top: https://phabricator.kde.org/source/plasma-pk-updates/ should properly deal with TW updates (looks like it still does a 'up' instead of a 'dup'
