Hello,

I would like to announce a new package in Tumbleweed:
"transactional-update".

Nice idea! But for installation of critical packages, maybe would be
better to use this schema:

1) just download critical RPMs (don't install emediately);

2) at next reboot (or re-login, depending on situation), at early stage
of boot, do installation of thees RPMs;

3) if necessary automatically reboot again.


This is supported by PackageKit for quite some time already

https://www.freedesktop.org/wiki/Software/systemd/SystemUpdates/

I believe this schema can work not only for BTRFS filesystem (with
snapshoots), but also with reliable EXT4 (that don't support snapshots).

This is just idea to enhence situation. Maybe "transactional-update"
could benefit from it in case of problematic packages.
