[Mono-dev] red carpet channel info

it start to be hard to keep updating my system using 2 or 3 different
package managers, so I decided to use SMART to keep it up to date, as
it can use red carpet repositories as well, so I can keep mono

My system is SuSE 9.3, i386. For now I use red carpet to update mono,
but sometimes there are conflicts, or missing base packages, so I need
to use YaST first to install them, then to retry red carpet, etc.

With Smart it should be much more easy, i f I can find info about the
mono channels. This are the fields I can not fill in smart, in order
to make it use mono's redcarpet repositories:

1. Base URL for packages
2. URL for packageinfo XML

I googled a lot, but I can not find useful info about the internal
structure of a red carpet repo, so I can not figure it out by myself
what the right URLs are, based only on the information provided hot to
setup redcarpet for mono. I.e. I only know the services url
http://go-mono/download, and the name of the channels, but it is not

Any help will be highly appreciated.
