That's because that URL is a web interface to a SCM repository, not a 
repository of SuSE packages.

Not for SuSE right now, no.

That's because the RPMs are for RedHat/Fedora systems which have

install, but it's likely that the Fedora RPM won't put things in the 
right place.

If you want to install on SuSE, you'll need to do so via a source install:
