    Default Suse MySQL and MySQL workbench

    I am looking at the downloads here MySQL :: Download MySQL Workbench and MySQL :: Download MySQL Community Server.

    As one is source code and the other is suse enterprise linux, are these the best downloads for MySQL on suse 11.3? Is there a best source for the install? Suse specific rpm's?

    Try zypper or YAST first to look at the OpenSuSE repositories.
    If those aren't "latest" enough for you, consider looking at the OpenSuSE Build Service.

    By installing using a package manager like YAST/zypper, your system can automatically maintain and update your app.

    No. Use yast to install the package and it will come from the official openSUSE OSS repo. The openSUSE package contains a lot of patches to fix some issues and integrate it nicely with your 11.3 OS. Anything else is not recommended unless you know exactly what you are doing, but then you wouldn't have asked ...
