Apt also has another huge advantage when one is managing multiple systems

and caches requests for clients on the internal network (without needing to
maintain a local repository mirror). Even better - apt-cacher-ng now caches
for zypper/yum as well, so I can now use my Pine64 running debian (at home)
the debian VM (at work) to proxy and cache updates for both openSuSE and
debian/raspbian clients.

That's a feature that I have missed on openSUSE for ages. Seems nobody
wants to create it.
