Yes, SLE is the black sheep. Apparently neither the SP2 nor the SP3
repos have been published to the mirrors.
As the mirroring part is only somewhat in my hand, I will try the quick
fix to rename the SLE_11_SP3 repo to SLE_11. For SLE_11 the handling at
the packman.links2linux.de site is in place, so it "should" work that

Renaming the repo(s) will cause a rebuild of all packages, and it may
take a while until the packages arrive at the mirrors.



PS: there seem to be _very_ few users of packman packages on SLE, this
never came up for the past Year and a half!
