I don't remember having ever seen this term with this meaning. And I
found it especially unhappy: in the world of versioning systems, the
repository is the global archive, not a subpart of it. I'd rather use
the term of packages repositories to distinguish between PLF, Mandriva,
SoS, etc...

sub-section, flavour, or anything else expressing the time-based
difference between those set of packages, would be more appropriate.

With the additional subdivision between source, binary and debug
packages, each shipped in a different media... A media is just an atomic
item in urpmi configuration.
