No assurances that it's constant, but in 9.3, they are in separate
directories under /var/adm/YaST/InstSrcManager/. Each source directory
is name IS_CACHE_<hex_number>, eg. IS_CACHE_0x00000001, with the basic
repository information stored in
/var/adm/YaST/InstSrcManager/IS_CACHE_<number>/DESCRIPTION/description, eg:

~ # cat
/var/adm/YaST/InstSrcManager/IS_CACHE_0x00000001/DESCRIPTION/description

=URL: ftp://ftp.gwdg.de/pub/linux/misc/suser-guru/rpm/9.3

=Default_rank: 2

<etc etc>

Have a peek around the tree structure there with, eg. Konqueror, as it's
not easy (particularly with a migraine :-) ) to visualize it using ls
commands at the keyboard.
