On Package repositories - openSUSE quite a few useful repositories are listed, however, only for SuSE 11.1 and upwards. Is there a way to access the same repositories for 11.0? (E.g. Contrib, KDE:KDE3 etc.)
I remember that in Ubuntu the repositories for outdated versions had been simply moved to a slower server but I could use them just the same even when my version was a few years old. It would be good to have this for OpenSuSE as well. (Especially that the version I’m working on is on my machine at work, so I cannot just upgrade it.)
11.0 has reached end of life
The oss, non-oss and update are still there though
So did my Ubuntu back then. That’s what I’m talking about. Aren’t the other repositories still available for 11.0 somewhere? (Like in Ubuntu, where outdated repositories were moved to ubuntu.archive.com.)
As far as I know, no. Apart from the officials repo (oss, non-oss, source, updates) that are still available on a few mirrors, all 3rd party repo are deprecated. You have to make a personal backup before the end of life of the release if you need them, or use a distribution with a longer life cycle.

There is a “discontinued” tree where the oss, non-oss and updates repos are kept, on some mirrors.
Some might keep a copy of some repositories, or none at all. Have a look at gwdg5, I think it is.
If you need oS 11.0, make your own copy of all repos you can get at (yet) that you may ever need.
