Beside many other changes, I moved the source link to the right now.

Would it be possible to check if the package in question for the
official version has an official update available and if so provide that
as the install option rather than giving the link to the official
version only, resulting the user installs it later on via YOU or zypper
or by whatever means the user has to update the package ie. double work.

Why not provide the user with the updated package, if such exists in the
beginning, and maintain an uptodate system while easing the workload of
the end user.

Hi Togan,
it's already implemented like that. Check for example the kernel-default
package:
http://software.opensuse.org/package/kernel-default
It will install 3.1.9 from the Update repo, while the 12.1 release had 3.1.0.

Doesn't that work for you?
Greetings
