The packages in the hardware repository all run on RHEL4 and RHEL5,
though they also work on other distros.  The packages are hardlinked,
so the only difference the suse* and sles* directories add are the
SuSE-specific metadata, which is pretty small.  You could exclude the
suse*/ and sles*/ directories using rsync if you want though, to save
even that much.
