Am including Factory list, perhaps in 11.3 a better way of making

On project list, a request was made for source by someone unfamiliar
with openSUSE suggested an ISO; installing source rpm's with YaST is
not working as it did in past for me, because only binary packages are
held on most of the mirrors.

Now you mention it, I haven't been able to install source rpms with yast
for ages, I think SuSE 7.3 was the last time or 9.1, this is actually a
much overlooked bug or lacking feature. I normally use "zypper si" to
install source rpms.
