So, when you used SuSE 9.2, it had already been open for over 6 months.

With "closed" I do not mean closed source, I mean the specific data
management, that doesn't allow to enter new packages *other* than RPM.

In that case, it's not YaST you're commenting on, but RPM. The software
installer part of YaST is just a front-end for RPM.
