"seamless upgrade to Leap 42.3" undefined

Felix Miata-3
"Users are advised to take advantage of the seamless upgrade to Leap 42.3."

The above quote is taken from:
https://en.opensuse.org/Release_announcement_42.3 and
https://en.opensuse.org/Portal:42.3

Neither define the term "seamless upgrade".

"Seamless upgrade" does not appear on:
https://doc.opensuse.org/release-notes/x86_64/openSUSE/Leap/42.3/ or
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:System_upgrade or
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:Offline_upgrade or
https://en.opensuse.org/SDB:How_to_migrate_to_a_new_openSUSE_version

Google is unable to locate for me anything on opensuse.org that defines
"seamless upgrade".

Does anyone here know where it is defined, or what it is supposed to mean?

IMO "seamless upgrade" should either be conspicuously defined, or replaced with
other language.

I guess they refer to "online update".

I'd second this -- there seems to be a lot of confusion concerning what
is the best, officially sanctioned way of upgrading openSUSE.  I once
followed the "supported" upgrade instructions at
<https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Tumbleweed_upgrade> and, when they
didn't work for me, was chastised by a developer for not using the
"upgrade workflow". [1]  (I asked him for further details on what
workflow he was talking about but received no response.)

Regards,
Tristan

Ask about that "workflow" in the factory mail list, and ask they write
it up in the wiki.
