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
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

OK, I'll go along with the first part of what you state, namely that it
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.

It's a known bug.

Unless I have missed something, the above report refers to upgrading 12.3 -
and NOT 13.1-anything - using the DVD iso.

In any case, the first report is dated 25the and the iso was released on
30th. Surely enough time to fix the problem?

It's still the same bug. It's an issue that would affect you
upgrading to 13.1 from 12.1... or 12.2.. or 11.4.. or whatever. The
fact you upgraded from 13.1RC1 to RC2 doesn't make any difference to
the core problem identified in the bug.

As for time between 25 and 30 Oct to fix the problem? No clue... It
needs to be fixed before release though.

openSUSE 12.3 x86_64, KDE 4.11
