Ah, ok, 'just' a frontend...

Yes :)

"Just" a very visible application that looks like "my first program"
bringing openSUSE and KDE a lot of unwanted publicity, where your
observation about lack of feedback is the mildest one.

Now that you know that lack of features and almost all errors are due
to midleware that connects libzypp to PackageKit, which is source of
information for Apper, you understand that guys that work on package
management in SUSE (libzypp, YaST, zypper, WebYaST and whatnot), could
help a bit more with that midleware so that Apper and KDE in openSUSE
look a bit more professional.

What would be consequence?
openSUSE and their downstream (SLES and SLED) will look a bit better.
