Yes, you do :-)

There are two main "rules": the priority level you give each repo, and if
possible update is in a different repo implying a vendor change (meaning,
once you choose a package from a certain repo, it will not change to a newer
version on another repo).

Well if the priority level of each repo is set by default relative to the
order in which they are added, and so was randomly set to the order in
which I first discovered the existence of each repo, then I'll concede that
I inadvertently may have set that rule... ;-)

In which case, how would I go about assigning a different priority level?

zypper --help
zypper mr --help
zypper mr -p <some number> <repo>

But as far as the existence of some rule that would cause "zypper up" to
change vendor in spite of how man zypper implies that it won't, that rule
would have been set by some default value, as the only way I could be said
to have set it would be by the omission of any action to set it explicitly...

How does one set a rule to allow zypper up to change vendor?

edit /etc/zypp/zypp.conf
change # solver.allowVendorChange = false

And would that allow it to change vendor on download error such as a bad
checksum on the current vendor's copy of a package that is also available in
another enabled repo?


*Most* of this is discoverable by using the included docs and/or perusing
the config files of the concerned apps.
