I decided to "upgrade" RC1 to RC2 by using the RC2 DVD iso I downloaded
a few days ago.

In doing so, the "upgrade" DELETED *all* of my existing repositories
listed in YaST leaving the DVD as the only "repo".

Is this what is really supposed to happen?

I don't know, but I'm going to guess +1, reason being, upgrade is intended for application of 13.1 against 12.3 (or older), not 13.1 against 13.1, which would be a "repair", not an upgrade, likely maybe also to replace repos.

OK, I'll go along with the first part of what you state, namely that it is intended to upgrade an earlier version than 13.1 Beta==>RC1.

But then if it IS the intent to upgrade, say, 12.3 to RC2 then if it is going to wipe out all the repos in YaST it must replace them with the new ones intended for 13.1 - but it didn't do this, it just left me with no repos at all.

(BTW, when I did do this "upgrade" (from RC1 to RC2) the process decided in its wisdom not only to wipe out all the repos but it also downloaded some 580+MB of files! I found this amusing because my RC1 has been kept up-to-date on a daily basis.)
