I think it would be most efficient to list the general operating system 
as the top-level, and then organize the operating system versions below 
that.  The reasons are first that some operating systems have a lot of 
releases that would crowd out the other ones, the other is that in some 
cases the maintainers may wish to set symlinks (e.g., because sles9 and 
suse91 are binary compatible) or share a common source or otherwise 
organize the files more efficiently, which is better not done at the 
top level.  So for example:

8.0.0/
  fedora/
  redhat/
  slackware/
  suse/
  windows/
