Probably, yes.

What do you get instead -- connection refused, or permission denied?

(I use OpenSSH myself.)

Precisely that: type in a URL.  Or use copy & paste.  The list of
repositories is in the wiki (ApplicationRepositories), and the
application catalog also should have "repository", "distribution" and
"component" fields that you're supposed to fill in when you add a new
application, uh, catalog.

I don't think so.  If the documentation provided on the maemo wiki is
not sufficient, maybe you can add a sentence or two after you've figured
things out?

Yeah, if we had something like Ubuntu's "universe" repository, that
could be enabled by checking an option somewhere in the application
catalog, and all popular 3rd-party apps lived there, things would be
much easier.
