Updated: Do you ever get exposed to supportconfig files from servers that do not have access to update repositories? Or do you find it difficult to relate to patch numbers of updates (not) installed in updates.txt of a supportconfig?

If so, how do you easily find out if there are pending updates available from SUSE/Novell to be installed on the system to make it up to date?
