No, it is not "tricky", but some of the manipulations make the use
somewhat tricky. You just moved 4.12 into Tumbleweed standard as
4.12.2-2.1 or greater in a few instances, but the last last version in
Tumbleweed Testing was 4.12.2-4.1 so "zypper dup" wants to downgrade 143
pkgs on my box to 4.12.2-1.

I don't know the details, but the implied assumption that 4.12.2-4
from one repo is newer than 4.12.2-1 from another repo is wrong.

Anything after the - is repo specific and comparisons can simply not
be made. Specifically if something at revision 4.12.2-4 is pushed as
a brand new package to a different repo, it will be considered a
virgin package in the new repo and will be numbered 4.12.2-1
