I'm not sure, if this is bug or feature... After few days, update
applet (TW,
KDE) says there are 6843 new updates (TeX, R, ... ;-). When I click
"Install updates" error "Too many packages to process (6843/5200)"
Zypper handles it well. Is it worth of bug report? To b.o.o?

Since Tumbleweed must be updated with 'zypper dup', and these
graphical frontends do not do the equivalent of a 'zypper dup', there
is nothing to worry about.

Consequently, PackageKit and it's clients should be banned from TW

Rather these clients should utilize available information which
command to use during update. zypper knows that "dup" is preferred
over "up" and displays warning; so these clients could use the same
information and chose "dup" automatically.
