That number was zero.

Dear Tumbleweed users,
I want to inform you upfront of a few specialties:
* The snapshot is going to be large, in the number of packages to
'update' (mostly rebuild counters) and thus also megabytes.
* The snapshot is the first to be based on glibc 2.33
Because glibc changed to 2.33, a large number of packages had to be
Programs having to be relinked and packages being re released are two
very different things, No program should have had to be relinked so
binaries not from openSUSE RPM's did not have to be rebuilt, however by
the current design in tumbleweed it did cause a large number of packages
to be updated. Which isn't great for users because the package manager
needs to download them all but that is part of the understanding of
using tumbleweed. At the same time it also shouldn't have broken
anything once they used zypper to update.
