Ladies and gentlemen,
Unfortunately, I unintentionally started synchronization already.
It's no use having a partial UP pack. So, I'll finish the synchronization as if it was planned this way.
Until further notice: please do not upgrade your system!

Below you see the information shown by the "Update Pack Info" button in the Update Manager after the repository synchronization.

Just popped up here at SolydK 8:54am

Update Pack 2013.09.06

Changes These are the highlights.

Santa has made KDE 4.11.1 available.
The kernel has been updated to version 3.10-2
Firefox has been updated to version 23.0.1

Problem tho is update manager is not showing number of packages and total size anywhere that I can see.
I need that kind of info to schedule when as others use this connection and don't want to bog them down.

Well found it in selecting Log
2-09-2013 08:51:36 RefreshThread.run INFO 565 recommended updates available (442MB)

Wish they would apply that info to the bottom status bar like everyone else does. And include package info so I know what it is.
Nice to see tho that they didn't include the re-downloading of KDE wallpapers which is about 84mb in size and I always had to make sure it was tagged with ignore.

UP7 is getting closer, and some important things have been fixed yesterday (see Clem's posts starting from this one). There's still a need for more testers.
Anyone volunteering? It would certainly be more interesting than discussing the woes of the large downloads :)
