Still the message:

is perhaps not appropriate for TW.

Even without vendor change you have to be careful to not have
incompatible repos in the list

The aim should be to get packages into TW proper and eliminate the need
for 3rd party repos (obvious exceptions - but even there, the warning
holds true)


Agree, and I went back from 20+ repo's to this:

Act Pri Rfr Type Name URL
=== === === === ====== =================
1 Yes 99 No rpm-md Archiving-Factory
10 Yes 99 No rpm-md filesystems-TW
13 Yes 20 No rpm-md hardware-TW
15 Yes 99 No rpm-md knurpht-TW
21 Yes 99 No rpm-md pgadmin4-Factory
22 Yes 99 No rpm-md Postgres-TW
17 Yes 95 No yast2 Non-OSS-TW
19 Yes 95 No rpm-md OSS-TW
28 Yes 95 No rpm-md Update-TW
20 Yes 20 No rpm-md Packman-TW
30 Yes 99 No rpm-md Vivaldi
18 Yes 99 No rpm-md Opera

where hardware was suggested by this list to solve problems a bit back.

Opera is obvious, and I am a alpha-tester and the repo does not
conflict. Vivaldi is there because when I started testing it, it
still isn't. It is in home:kasza_w_spreju.

Postgres is in there because one of the main goals for this box is to
test the upcoming version before I install/upgrade on production boxes.
Even if incompatible, this is a deliberate and well-considered choise
and I am aware of the consequences

krurpht was added because of something now in TW, but e.g. unarj still
isn't in TW.

Archiving still has some uncommon tools that I nneed to support weird
Windows customers that send me crazy stuff

I have filesystems in there because I want Office-365 integration and
that was the only repo that showed packages that would help me. So far
I am unsuccessful in that respect though. Followinf M$' docs does not
lead to something that works (neither on Windows).
