But in the update 1b) at the bottom, i.e the following command is used


zypper ar -f http://download.opensuse.org/factory/repo/oss/ "openSUSE

Doesn't that repo upgrade to that current Factory distribution and not to
the M8 snapshot (developement release)?
http://en.opensuse.org/Factory_distribution

That is, shouldn't the repo instead be
http://download.opensuse.org/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/
or optionally
http://download.opensuse.org/factory-snapshot/repo/oss/
to get that latest 11.2 M8 developement release?

Yes, that would get you exactly to the milestone release and not to the state
of factory - which is the same at the day of the release but moves forward
until the next milestone comes out,
