no, that was the only purpose ;)
No, seriously, back then, when I wrote that code for <remove-packages>, the taboo for packages was the only reliable way to tell the resolver "believe me, I don't want that package". The resolver always wanted to reselect the package unless it was on taboo. In the meantime the zypp resolver is a lot smarter and I should check that code again to replace it with something better because I think taboo is no longer needed unless you want to "remove-package" a package that is required by another one - then only taboo helps. I'll put that on my todo
. Is there a bug in autoyast which does not removes these locks ?
you can remove the /etc/zypp/locks file in an init-script or so. Then all locks should be gone.
