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?

Depends on when packages are updated.

Currently, I'm getting them 450MB at a time two to three times a week.

There has been a lot of churn last week, due to the KDE update, and a
few other core things updating. As it was a KDE update, it took a bit
of time to get it right, and if you notice, it's still not "correct" so
expect another update soon when people figure it out...

thanks,

greg k-h
