zypper progress indicator
Provide an indicator using zypper up or zypper dup to let the user know how far along the process is (preferably by percentage.)
Makes use of zypper less intimidating to some users who feel they are at the mercy of a command that doesn't tell them how they are doing.
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
Especially challenging if you are in the middle of zypper updates and unsure how far along you need to do something else (even possibly come back to the machine. Knowing what percentage of the progress is completed would be useful.
I don't think we want some other type of indicator (e.g. how much time left) because there's too many variables. But a percentage should be fairly straightforward. We know how many packages are to be downloaded/installed and how many are completed so far.
