Well Its not that I don't appreciate that, but historically suse has been
extreemly late getting out updates to very time sensitive packages
such as SpamAssassin. These packages are a month old.

Cpan at most 24 hours old.

The real problem is a "recommended" package is treated like a
dependency by the Software Updater.

A generic question: Why would it be so hard for a software updater
package to check for the existance of packages installed by other
