On my computer I just like to update my 11.4 with the latest so I do a

No big problems up to now but as I see the daily harvest of changes I
just wonder if somebody could give me the story behind such changes.
Today e.g. there was a change for libfm 0.1.14_rc2-82.1
0.1.14_rc2-83.1 No idea what is using this lib but I just wonder who

Check with rpm -q --changelog libfm the changes of the package.

The 82 -> 83 normally indicates some kind of change, the digits afterwards
is for build numbers.

thinks and decides to start changing e.g this lib and looking at the
numbering it must have been a small change. sometimes the change is also
to an earlier version. Has somebody put more changes into such a work and
than found out that it was more than it should be?
Is there place where I could look into the kitchen? Do not want to cook
myself ;) but just would like to see the cook at work.

Are you really running plain 11.4 or do you have some additional
repositories added?

For each package you can figure out why something was changed, e.g. using
osc triggerreason,


Running among others following repositories: Extra, Factory KDE, Factory,
Factory EXtra, Java, KOTD, Packman factory .
