Actually, Yast2 has YOU (Yast online update), and you can list multiple
repositories if you like. It is extremely easy to get patches and fixes,
much better than ever, with the new v8.2. It works all the time, no timing
out on the servers.. as patches/fixes are listed for security reasons,
they are available on the servers for YOU.
