There's AFAIK really no .repo file.  There's repomd.xml  and a repodata
directory - but I'm not aware of a file ending with ".repo",

It is not part of rpm-md but every repository on the build service has
a .repo file. eg:

http://software.opensuse.org/download/Apache:/Gallery/SUSE_Factory/Apache::Gallery.repo

Which gives some metadata about the repository. Hopefully in the
future zypp will have support for the metadata in these for purposes
of for example uniquely identifying a repository regardless of the
physical URL.
