zypper dup wants to re-install nearly 200 already install packages.

That's because all of the Tumbleweed repo just rebuild due to KDE
updates, as well as other core updates (kmod and util-linux).

So this is to be expected, and just part of the deal with Tumbleweed.

re: kde update, is it possible to have it pushed once a week or so?
Currently, I'm getting them 450MB at a time two to three times a week.
Not that I mind really, connection can take it, but taking the median
denominator I'm sure not everyone is happy with it.

In this, I'm probably missing something else so please correct me if my point
of view is wrong.
