User added repositories should have a lower priority than the core
distro repos (change request).
Usually these repositories contain additional software not available
anywhere else but are less trustworthy than the core distro packages.
f.i. I do not want packages to be installed from Packman if they are
available in the core distro as well. If there are certain packages that
should rather be taken from Packman than OpenSuse-OSS I wanna select
Even worse giving newly added repos a higher priority by default will
make all those temporarily added repos that just were intended to
install a single package or a few override the core distro packages. The
security implications are really just too bad.
So even if someone would like Packman to have a higher priority than
the core distro packages that should not automatically be applied to all
temporarily added repos.
Even worse some users will desire to add Suse11.0-repos to a Suse 11.1
installation, because a couple of packages are not available in 11.1 as
it is not a major release.
