Opera Software Opera 10.60 has been released July 1 for Mac OS X and is available for download. The features highlighted on the changelogs page are: layout engine (codename 'Presto'), HTML5 with support for offline web applications, WebM, which has been available in Opera (in a special build) on the very day of the announcement at the Google I/O conference, web workers for running scripts in the background without impeding the browsing experience, and geolocation. Version 10.60 is also available for Windows and Linux/BSD.

It doesn't contact the server and ask for glibc et al. And you can check the repo yourself, there is nothing else than Opera-related packages, and as such none of the system packages are downloaded from there.

You are misunderstanding the problem. The problem is that there is nothing stopping opera software from placing glibc or openssh-server packages on their repo and then those opera's unofficial versions would be installed on all opera users' computers.

And I do understand how repos work. I'm running one myself. Heck, I even provide fixed opera packages on my repo, even though it's against opera's license agreement. (If they decide to show me the finger I decide to show them back.)
