Yes. That's what I wanted to say in my previous mail!
And because there was a mail about not accepting the term app store
because repository is such a good name: I have no idea whether
repository is such a good name for native speakers. For non native
speakers it is not. A store became somehow internationalised and
everybody understands this term. I would bet that 90% of non-geeks
non-english speakers will perfectly understand the term "application
store" but have problems to understand "application repository". In
the circle of my friends I would say it tends to 100%.
