YaST packages
Two new packages extracted from yast2-core: yast2-dbus-client and
yast2-dbus-server. This frees yast2-core of the DBus and PolicyKit
dependency (lslezak).

lslezak investigated the use of caching to avoid calling of long lasting
operations (like getting the list of available patches via PackageKit)
repeatedly. As long as the cache is valid, the UI gets the cached result
instead of executing the operation. Cache gets invalidated after certain
amount of time, or when a change affecting the result is detected.

* Searching/listing/installation by issues (bugzilla #, CPE advisories)
added (fate #305503)
* --download-only option added to several zypper commands like 'install'
to only download packages for later installation (fate #302159).
* Logging of http redirections added to ZYpp's Curl backend
(fate #305320). Will help resolve problems with broken mirrors used
by redirector.
