Description Alexander Shchadilov 2020-08-22 17:26:13 UTC
"Include recommended packages" checkbox in YaST/"Online Update Configuration" is disabled by default (after installing yast2-online-update-configuration). I suggest changing the default state as all other update methods that rely on Libzypp behave differently (by default).
In YaST/"Online Update" this is configurable via "Dependencies"/"Install recommended packages" (enabled by default), other software will honour solver.onlyRequires option from /etc/zypp/zypp.conf (false by default, meaning that recommended packages are installed).
I think that generally a user expects that turning on automatic updates will schedule the same process as that is initiated with updating manually.

Well, I believe that such change IS a feature request.
And as such, it needs:
