I highly doubt that, as I've been using SUSE since 6.x
days, and everything has always been in one place, as
it should be, until 10.0. SUSE OSS could have been
nothing more than links to the appropriate parts of
the suse directory tree. Looking at
ftp://mirror.mcs.anl.gov/pub/suse/i386 one can see
that directories exist for 9.0, and 9.1. 9.0 should be
past security support by now, and 9.1 soon to follow.
If 9.0 were removed from the mirrors, there would be
more than enough room for the inst-source tree for
10.1.

ftp://mirrors.kernel.org/ has both the suse tree, and
opensuse tree. They certainly couldn't object to
having the inst-source tree moved to the suse tree
once it's finalized. OpenSUSE should be reserved for
working on the next SUSE release, and the
finished/finalized product should be moved to the
suse.com mirrors, to avoid any confusion.

At least that makes sense.
