Every openSUSE user know what you give to us :-) thanks.


With the comming of the 13.1, I did a lot of fresh installs recently 
and setting the packman repo in openSUSE is both mandatory for many

I fear it will be difficult to make it better from the openSUSE side, 
due to well known legal restrictions.

but I wondered if it could be possible to have a one clic install on

(thanks again) :-), but it also makes problems with computers that are 
not always online.

are all these updates really mandatory for security reason, or 
coulnd't them be delayed by some way? I imagine I'm not the first that 
see this and the solution is not easy :-(
