I don't know if it's really the same discussion... I can
open a new thread if you think so :-)

but there are always problemm defining what all this mean.

I was said recently that it was no more usefull to make
bugreports about 10.0 if not security ones.

so it's not clear to me of what exactly YOU, update and
upgrade do.

specially seeing that SUSE packages are always way behind
the ones found on the devs web site.

it's not a complain at all, it's not possible to follow each
and any package, but a clarification is always good.

*what are the packages patched by SUSE? these ones should be
taken from SUSE repositories to keep in sync with the
distro. I beg these ones are updated by YOU? may be there
are several kind of patches (enhancement, distribution
adaptation, security?).
*what packages are changed by an update?
*what packages are changed by an upgrade?

I think that initially the page was said to
give this: what is différent from the previous version.

I now don't give this info.

Probably it should be worth to have a list of all the
packages ever used in SUSE (raw) with a quotation mark in
the distro number (column-or better the version number).

But this needs any kind of sorting, because there are a
great many :-)

may be it could be worth a database app with entried for
packages, versions (initial, last updated), SUSE versions.

but I don't know how to integrate this in the wiki (by the
way don't Novell/Suse have already such data???)
