If yast2 sw_single + YOU is going to be replaced soon with something from the grander vision, very well, then it's not justified spending resources on this. Else, some buttons or CLI options that will skip the refresh wouldn't hurt.

Uhm,
I personally think that this is personal taste .... I mean, on the yum-side of the world this is strictly necessary (haven't found - or searched, for what matters - any different option on this) and they have worked out on speeding out yum (using sql-lite IIRC) and the speed of the repos.

Now, having slow answering yast repos (sorry pal, but anyone I know here in Italy sais the same and I have a "formal" 4megabits line) are annoying (if not other things).

So, *you* have to decide whenever go with a "stable" repo list for a day, a week, a month or to update the list on a regular basis .... it depends on your user profile ... you are running a development machine, a mission critical one, a bleeding-edge laptop ...

Cheers,
nicola
