I guess "zypper lu" does not display what "zypper dup" will do.

zypper up updates your system, defined as a collection of packages
from a certain vendor.

zypper dup CHANGES your system to a new state. It may downgrade,
uninstall, remove, packages. The state is defined by the repository
you dup against or repo priorities if you are not doing against a
specific one.

Hmm, do we have a 'lu' equivalent for 'dup'?

People still don't get the difference. Debian has dist-upgrade and
upgrade too IIRC.
Me too. :-)

Changing 'to a new state' is not quite clear to me.
If it would say, 'zypper dup -r openSUSE:11.3' can be used to go from
e.g. 11.2 to 11.3 then it would be much clearer.
