I am a user (not a developer) and I am confused because of the lack

priorities in yast/software-management, so you need to know how to use
them best or they should be hidden behind an "expert-button" or so,
and even then they need documentation. I admit there are 2 centences
about priorities in Yast/repo-management if you click "Help", but they
do not tell why one would use priorities or how they are used best in
which situation.

I understand that in the case of tumbleweed the priorities are a moot
point. You are supposed to do a "dup --from tumbleweed", so any package
you had installed from packman will be replaced, regardless of the
priority packman has.

If you do a plain "dup" without saying "from tumbleweed" then priorities
are a concern - but the wiki says not to do it if you have extra repos.

So indeed using packman with tumbleweed is a concern. You have to do a
second update run switching multimedia back to packman.
