I'm seeking
a way to automate or semi-automate the synchronization of the two
installed systems.

Repos are nothing more than the content of /etc/zypp/repos.d/*.repo. Tar that
from one installation and extract it on the other, and the repository sets on
the two installations will be identical.

Not completely. Yes, the repos will be identical. But which package (of an
application available in several repos) is installed depends on when it was
installed, and which of the repos had been active at that time. So even if you
have identical repos one machine can have a different version installed than
another. And 'zypper up' will never change that situation, as it won't change
an application to another repo...

A zypper dup on both/all machines (with identical repos) would sync them, but is
probably not what you want.
