Repositories: Same repository with different URLs?

http://forums.opensuse.org – Hmmm - I just checked my repository list to make sure I was keeping extra repositories out of the regular lineup ("enabled"). I noticed something - somehow I have two, and sometimes 3, of what seem to be the same repository - with slight differentiation in the URL. Example: the OSS repository. Exists as - URL: Index of /distribution/11.2/repo/oss URL: Index of /distribution/11.2/repo/oss URL: Index of /distribution/11.2/repo/oss/suse How much difference will the small syntax differences make? I would guess that, of the first two, either should be equally effective. The third, with the /suse, could be significantly different, but I don't know the logic of the repository layout. I'm sure somebody knows, and will help educate me. BTW, I did a search on the forums for a similar question, and got too much stuff. I couldn't think of a good way to filter the results down.
