The update repo for TW is not needed normally, but it doesn't hurt to
have it enabled. It is only used on emergencies: for instance, when a
security issue is found, but for some reason can not be provided in
the main repo (it is not building, f.i.), a patch may be provided
instead in the update repo.

Not exactly. Packages land in the TW repos when a new snapshot is released. In
some cases the devs can push updates through the update repo, to avoid having
to wait for the new snapshot to be released.
