delayed to wait for the libzypp fix.

should not have given any good; Remember that the problem come from _not_ having enough update repositories (out from Novell). Novell testbeds runned perfectly, so alpha was ok, but as soon as released problem come.

so the problem was due to an organisation error with a pretty difficult thing to solve (having external update repos before the final cut)

of course the problem should have been better accepted is there where not a lot of minor but annoying small bugs :-(

The decisions were clearly not made in favour of a stable SUSE 10.1
release, but in favour of an SLES product. And, I believe, the Novell
management would do it again exactly like this.

and I hope so. if not do you think Novell could spend as luch money? they need income back.

understand that we (openSUSE users) use a free totally functional product. Novell mostly sell support.
