In these directories there is a README file. Did you read that?

"Dear ftp user,

the directory structure on has been changed to make it
cleaner, smaller and easier to search and handle.

The changes in particular:

The KDE/KDE2, GNOME and X directories have been moved to the
supplementary/ directory.

Directories belonging to distributions older than SuSE-6.3 have been
moved to the newly created directory /pub/discontinued/ to have the
currently supported distributions (6.3 through 7.2) placed in a common
tree for their supported period of two years after release."

totally illogic, with just a little bit more effort."
