I'm not officially a person ;) but the sooner ZMD et al
disappear from my systems the better. At the moment,
zen-updater has lost my update sources and packman, so it
doesn't go orange when updates are available. I didn't notice
when this happened. I've given up caring, and I now no longer
run it, ever! The update and packman repositories still show up
fine (and work fine) in YaST and YOU, so I just try to remember
to run YOU once every week or so to collect and install
updates. Nice to have delta-rpms back :)

I have the 10.2 Beta1 DVD burned and ready to install
experimentally, which I hope to get round to tomorrow. I'll be
interested to see how the opensuse-updater behaves. Well, I
hope (could hardly be worse than zen-updater).

That would indeed be excellent news.
