Per-instance (temporary) repo enabling in zypper
in yum it is possible to enable a repository only for one instance.
yum --enable development install rhythmbox
will install rhythmbox from disabled repo development.
yum --disable repo fedora install x
will install package x from other repo, which packages have less priority than
fedora's packages and the fedora's packages are preffered by yum.
per-instance repo management is good idea, esp. if you're not willing to permanently update your whole system to factory, but eg. update single firefox.
You won't need to enable and disable repos every time you want only concrete packages from a repo.
Set user benefit
You can add different relations here, for example duplicate features, obs projects, urls...
To embedd an image you can simply upload it to paste.opensuse.org and add a relation to its raw url.
Set release notes
Jon is an active Mozilla contributor and wants to ensure Firefox is the same stable and featured downstream so he calles zypper up --enable mozilla:factory mozillafirefox and gets fresh firefox along with other required packages without enabling and disabling repo by hand or updating whole system accidentaly.
