access DRM content. So, once you have decided to use the package
from Packman, you probably want to stay with it. Even if the
openSUSE repo may get a new version before Packman. This is true of
many packages for various reasons. The --no-allow-vendor-change
just means that zypper should not update a package from a different
repo without asking if that is what you really want.

other way, and then asking. Otherwise, it will stay at lower release
numbers to keep the vendor, as far as possible.

For instance, another installed package may request a much newer
