Subject: [PATCH] Tighten repository name requirements
Date: Thu, 14 Jul 2011 16:53:55 +0100
By requiring repository names to also be valid package names, a package
mangler may treat repositories as packages. This then allows, for
example, a user to 'install' a repository, which would instruct the
package manager to perform the relevant configuration (including
installing any masters) and syncing.
