I think it was KDE:Unstable:Applications and KDE:Unstable:Frameworks.
But this can also happen with just Tumbleweed, actually. Packman just happens 
to have a higher build version right now.

Probably should be done though. Or should it be fixed in zypp?
For example, if I use zypper in --from Packman, it doesn’t try to get 
dependencies from Packman but just uses whatever has the highest version.
IMO it should really try to get dependencies from the same vendor…
