The whole thing or partially? I've always wondered, are those things
atomic (can one install part of a snapshot when installing too soon)?

The entire snapshot is realaes 'as one' to the FTP sync - the 'leading
thing' is basically the meta-data: if you got the metadata for the new
snapshots - all referenced binaries must be from the new snapshot.

The only way you can get in 'half-updates' is by not running 'zypper
dup' and doing selective updates (which you can, if you know exactly
what you're doing - but complaining about breakage is a no-go
afterwards)

Cheers,
