The problem is the unnecessary build that takes place which then
requires unnecessary download and install. If there is no change in
package it does not require a rebuild. Just because one KDE package
changes does not mean 100% of the KDE packages need rebuild. And, why
the hell does a KDE update require a rebuild of the kernel? Are the
kernel devs now employing code from the KDE devs?

That's all we're saying. :-)

But that's how OBS repos work - if you don't want daily updates, then
don't call zypper dup daily.

OK. Does packman use the OBS? If so how do they keep from triggering a
rebuild of every package in their repos which would require a
reinstall of all of their installed packages?

Yes it uses OBS and they don't keep from triggering in any way.

OK, clears up the mystery for me and perhaps many more.

Sorry for the noise.
