I just installed oS 12.2 and then "upgraded" it to Tumbleweed.

The burning question I have about TW is:

how can I install - and/or should I install - latest versions of
programs/applications/DE in TW?

For example, TW has only KDE 4.9.5 but v 4.10 has been around for a
while (and I have it in oS 12.2). Also, the latest version of
LibreOffice is 4.0 but the one in TW is 3.6.

Can I use the KDE 4.10 repo used for 12.2 to upgrade KDE in TW?

But re LibreOffice, I install it manually as a download from the LO
site. Can I do the same in TW?

I add various "Tumbleweed" repos

Sorry, I don't understand, Patrick, what are these Tumbleweed repos?
Where are they to be found?

with the usual warning about published but not ?? main-stream repos
and get *nearly* "cutting-edge" versions of apps.

So......are you saying that one cannot use the 12.2 KDE repo to get
v4.10 into TW but have to wait for Greg to provide v4.10?

not a good idea, can/will cause problems, especially when "current"
becomes 12.3 ...

I am bit puzzled about this because I thought that Tumbleweed was
supposed to be uptodate and even "beyond" the latest official release.
For example, TW which I installed tonight has kernel - but not
KDE 4.10. Only asking 'cause I am confused.....

you confuse "cutting-edge" with "beyond the latest official ..."
