with the introduction of the package dnf, that uses some of the new rpm boolean dependency operators (new since rpm 4.13), we ended up having metadata n the repository that is well understood by Tumbleweed systems, but not by any system one might want to upgrade to Tumbleweed (Think Leap 42.x). The final solution will be to finish the migration to the new product-builder, and thus using pure rpm-md repositories
Does that mean the "yast2" repository type (for zypper/repos.d/*) will go away?
Indeed - the new product builder will only provide pure rpm-md repos.
The repo structure on download.o.o of course will stay as we have it: download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/oss will continue to be the correct repo, but it's type will change from yast2 to rpm-md; libzypp was already though to handle this change (and treating the type= parameter in the .repo file as help, but re-evaluate if yast2 type is no longer available there).
