Yuu can use the following file:
http://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/SuSE/10.1-i386/base/contlist.bz2

It shows which packages are available. It's intended use is described here:
http://linux01.gwdg.de/apt4rpm/home.html#contents

More data might be available in following format:
bin;ftp.suse.com/suse/update/10.1/rpm/i586/aaa_base-10.1-15.i586.rpm;aaa_base;10.1-15;i586;;MD5_OK;GPG_OK;060404;314427
d
This info should be accessible from this location, but it is not (don't know
why): ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/suse/apt/share/suse101/cache/
Among other things it gives information, about the size and the date the
package was added to the repository....
