We use primary.xml for Download on Demand. Do we sit on a dead horse?
What else could we use instead for getting the meta data?

You should also support the susetags format, it's pretty easy to parse.

Which files in a SUSE repo file hierachy must we parse *instead* of
rpmmd primary.xml?

It is suse/setup/descr/packages.gz .

However, this format might get superceeded by an extended rpm-md with next
release (or not, the plan exists for a longer time already, but it did not
happen so far) ...

We had tested the flavors of rpmmd with the Download on Demand parser,
and tested in practise with Fedora/Red Hat and openSUSE/SUSE Linux
variants, to be sure it works. Now I wanted to add openSUSE 11.1 and
current Factory, but did not find a primary.xml . Couldn't you call
createrepo for us ? Otherwise we have to write a third parser.
