RE: [opensuse-project] who makes unannounced repo structure changes?
where should i have looked?

Probably the opensuse-kde mailing-list:
http://lists.opensuse.org/opensuse-kde/2010-07/msg00008.html

respectfully:

what is the world wide circulation of that mail list? and, who on the
mailing list is supposed to pick up the news and distribute it to the
thousandS affected who are not readers there?

Sorry, but you don't have to believe everything what people write in the
wiki.
There is absolutely no reason to panic, the old repo URLs still work.

Can I suggest 2 things:

1) a policy of redirecting the old URL to the new for at least 6 months
after change

2a) the development of a modules in the core zypper system which will flag
up when a build system's repo's URL changes. This shouldn't be too
difficult to automate.

Or

2b) add the check of old repo URLs into the zypper refresh code, and
generate a warning if they are.

David
