Personal preference, but I like to leave the default directories untouched and
make a custom/update path with any new rpms. That way you still have an
untouched default setup and don't have to figure out what you added.

I put all our updates/custom packages in a SUSE-Updates path (at the same
level as your SUSE-CORE-9 path).

EXTRA_PROV is short for extra provides.. lists short names and the full path
to the executable, it's a text file, just look at it.

That should work for you though. Unless they expect that new rpms are put
into a seperate path like I do.
