You don't know about smart, so why are you giving your opinion anyway.

because for me SuSE = Yast and I wont change that. I also have seen bugreports for smart, there are also other systems (bare rpm, apt...) smart is only _your_ choice

Zen being "in the main Novell product" doesn't mean we can't fix it.

fix it in the meaning of making it better, for sure, it's needed. Replacing it by an other product when it's the core product of our only sponsor is probably not a choice (I attended a SLES/SLED conference, half of the time was about the hole Zen suite)

And, as I wrote above, the ZMD backend will always be broken as it is by
design.

what is mainstream is the zen suite. I presume that it's updater can (and hopefully will) evolve. I don't say it's perfect, but switching for an entirely different system is for me exactly like switching for red hat, debian or mandrake.

anyway, my personal concern is nor zen but YaST. Is there where a YaST smart module, situation would be entirely different, but is it to be any?

It involves using a lot more resources, a misbehaving daemon that takes
a lot of CPU and RAM, duplicating repository metadata between yast and
ZMD, ...

I know all the problems, this costed me one hour in a year... but why not working to fix them inspite of forking?

Well, it's not "semi official", it's 100% "unofficial", which is the
whole point of the opensuse-community.org wiki.

as I understood, opensuse-community.org was to discuss things impossible to discuss on opensuse.org. smart is _not_ one of these points. the simple "opensuse-community" wording means this represents the hole opensuse community (without "-"), isn't it?

if the opensuse-community wiki was to take such direction like your smart switch, I would definitively tag is unrecommended.

smart is _a_ choice, yours. this is nice as long as you don't advertise it as the only choice
