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.

Indeed.

The current situation provokes than on any apper related problem that pops up
in the forum,
the recommendation is to remove anything packagekit related, and use zypper or
yast instead.

Some might think that this is deviously intentional, making apper fail. >:-)
