Now please ask around how many people would consider it naturally if
their package manager switches from one repo to the other without them
being unable to prevent this.

AFAIK zypp is the only software manager that looks at the vendor to
prevent repo switching. All other managers smart, yum, apt...) only
have repo priorities.

but yum provides exclude patterns, which I do miss from time to time.

Just curious: how are they different from locks?

it will update the packages from that repos. but only those packages.
yum also an option to limit a repository to only a subset of packages.

so i could e.g. have openSUSE:Tools limited to osc because i want to
keep my old obs-server packages.


openSUSE - SUSE Linux is my linux
openSUSE is good for you
