The original announcement about that is here:

It would not be terribly difficult to make 2.0 available for 10.3 but we must be clear on the point that it is not tested and therefore not supported.  We don't want to alienate you but we also won't be held resposible if a 10.3 build of Mono 2.0 causes minor skin irritation.  :-)

Because you asked so politely I'm enabling the openSUSE_10.3 builds in the Mono OBS project.  It will be a while before they are built and published.

UNSUPPORTED: http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/Mono/openSUSE_10.3/

Please do consider upgrading to 11.0.  It's a solid release with vastly improved package management among other things.

Best Regards,
Andrew Jorgensen

PS: Any 10.3 builds are unofficial and unsupported, got it?  Good.
PPS: There's a good chance they'll work just fine.
PPPS: Don't tell anyone I said so though.

Jezz.... way to alienate the user base.  Ive been using Mono for a number of
years, and one of my main reasons for using SuSe/openSuse was due to the
fact that Novell always made sure that the mono releases were availble for
the last couple of suse releases.  Now Im faced with either upgrading to
11.0 or setting a day aside to build mono from source, and loose the system
maintained updates.

Thanks for that.
