A solution worth to explore is to start using variables like $releasever
in the .repo files.

So repos with 11.1 would automaitcally be 11.2 afterwards. Of course
still there is the need to check that those repos are valid.

Another possibility would be on upgrade to check for a file in each
repository that would provide the URI of the equivalent repository in
the new distro version.

This could allow the repository publisher to provide an upgrade path
for their repository without being tied to a specific URI format,
moving to alternative locations, consolodation of multiple
repositories into one and so on.
