On openSUSE I see python-matplotlib updated very often

On openSUSE I see python-matplotlib updated very often. Sometimes more as once a week. It is also not very small (almost 40 MB).
Is there a reason for this, or is there a problem at SUSE?

I assume you are using tumbleweed and/or devel:languages:python?

matplotlib has quite a few dependencies, and many of those have dependencies of their own. Whenever a dependency of a package is updated the open build service openSUSE uses for packaging the package is also updated.

So it isn't really matplotlib getting updates, but rather the packages it depends on (or packages they depend on, and so on). And none of those are updated very often, there are just a lot if them.

I am running below script on sles 11 and getting different output.

#!/bin/bash
PID=$(/bin/ps aux | grep sro-rest | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}')
echo "PID = $PID"
. /etc/rc.status
PID=$(/bin/ps aux | grep sro-rest | grep -v grep | awk '{print $2}')
echo "PID = $PID"

Output:

PID = 2453
PID =

After debugging, I get to know that once we run . /etc/rc.status then output of ps aux is getting short.
See below script for example,

#!/bin/bash
echo "Before ==================================> "
/bin/ps aux | grep java | grep -v grep
. /etc/rc.status
echo "After ==================================> "
/bin/ps aux | grep java | grep -v grep

Output :

Before ==================================>
root      2453  4.9  7.8 8496196 615020 ?      Sl   Jun05  60:31 /usr/java/jre1.8.0_77//bin/java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djava.library.path=/opt/sro/lib -Dserver.port=50000 -Dspring.profiles.active=gal -jar /opt/sro/ui/lib/sro-rest-SNAPSHOT.jar
After ==================================>
root      2453  4.9  7.8 8496196 615020 ?      Sl   Jun05  60:31 /usr/java/jre1.8.0_77//bin/java -Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true -Djava.l

Can anyone explain why different behavior for the same command?

I am running Ubuntu 12.04.2 and run the updates manually on a regular basis from the command line. I noticed that the Kernel gets updated too often...
I know I am supposed to reboot the machine after a Kernel update, but that means rebooting every two days. One of the things I like to do is run the uptime command and smile :-)
1. Why does the Kernel get updated so often?
2. How do I find the change log, so I can decide if I need to update / restart the machine?

I have downloaded Beautiful Soup, and have followed the instruction in the 'Getting Started with Beautiful Soup' book, but my Python installations keep returning errors, so I can't get started. I have unzipped Beautiful Soup to a folder of the same name on my C drive, in accordance with the first two steps of page 12 of the aforementioned publication, but proceeding to navigate to the program as in step three, re: "Open up the command line prompt and navigate to the folder where you have unzipped the folder as follows:

cd Beautiful Soup
python setup python install "

This returns on my Python 27 :
>>> cd Beautiful Soup
File "",line 1
cd Beautiful Soup
 ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>>

also I get:
>>> cd Beautiful Soup
SyntaxError: invalid syntax
>>>

to my IDLE Python 2.7 version, same goes for the Python 3.4 installations. Hope someone can help.
