Right, on SLE10 the value is used as media id: same value == same media(content). The file is quite small and was used as indicator for a changed repo. Meanwhile internet connections are faster, and you don't have to fight for each byte, so on SLE11 we check the repos index file itself. That's why rebuilding the repo is sufficient.
Thanks, confirms what I've been seeing, but good to hear a more official word.
I'll just have my updater script update the media file on the sle10 repos too.
