No problem, on the contrary :) I suggest also splitted repo url for each 
Leap point release 15.1, 15.2 and next, because this is the usual way 
all other system repos on Leap are used. Often I also just change the 
url repo-list from 15.1 to 15.2 before a Leap system upgrade.

It is not so important, but as a reference we had a related discussion 
earlier regarding Cin for Leap 15.0 vs Leap 15.1 and the "common" 
Leap15/ repo url:
