Actually, the smart package manager, which already present in "Tizen on 
Yocto", can replace entirely zypper.

"Tizen on Yocto" package's output directory on the host system can be 
converted into a package feed with the assistance of a web server, for 
example apache or something lighter. After that smart channels have to 
be set on the Tizen device. Finally, new package can be installed with a 
simple command, for example:

smart install -y zip

I have just done it and it works :)
