Can't reliably predict about special characters or capitalization in openSUSE
repos. Those I tried guessing didn't exist or got 403s.

I use zypper and/or text editor for repo management virtually exclusively,
almost never yast, so don't use 1-click, and I've never been able to figure out
how to get those 1-click script URLs to disgorge the repo URL on which each is
based. I very commonly want to /see/ timestamp(s) in a repo, consequently fetch
an rpm with wget, and visit via web browser to do so. opensuse-guide.org rejects
such attempts with 403 forbidden. If it didn't I wouldn't have needed to ask. :-(

"Announced" how? I tried clicking community repositories in yast and got a grand
total of two hits, both standard ones from openSUSE.org for TW.

> It has nothing to do with Packman though.

I know, but the admins on official openSUSE forums have been troublingly
exhortive lately. I had to guess here would be safer to ask. ;-)
