You're welcome!
I would have added you before, but I didn't know, you are involved in
this topic.
It is sometimes hard for me to keep track, who is responsible for which
topic in YaST :-)

The question is whether my change is a good thing for 11.0 as a temporary
solution for the problem.

I think, that it is a good solution!
As you already mentioned, putting the repo entry into the extra menu
might make it difficult for the users to find it.
A solution might be to include an entry "Repository Management" (or
something similar) between "Extras" and "Help".
When clicking on it, the menu drops down and an entry called "Start
Repository Management" (or "open" or "launch" or what ever you find
appropriate) appears, which starts repo management.
The "Start Repository Management" could also be started by a short cut
(like Ctrl+M as you already proposed).

This might make it easier for the user to notice, that he can start repo
management from the software management module.
