JFYI: libzypp-4.6.1 now supports repo priorities.

Allow prioritizing repos (yum-priorities) by adding a line


to the .repo file. Where N is an integer number from 1 (highest prio)
to 99 (least and default).

That's great, but ... ehm... what does it mean? I mean does it influence the solver or downloading a package in commit?

Example situation:
repository X with priority 99 containing package foo-1.0
repository Y with priority 90 containing package foo-0.9
repository Z with priority 95 containing package foo-1.0

User selects foo for installation. Which package will be installed?

And what users expect to happen when they change priority of a repository?
