please keep in mind, that YUM (repomd) and YaST (zypp) sources are not 
the only "installation source" formats supported. There is also the NU 
(Novell Update) format used by SLE(S|D) and the ZenWorks stuff 
(Opencarpet, Red Carpet Enterprise (RCE), or ZENworks).

"Catalogue" should definitely not be used, because this term is already 
used with the NU and ZenWorks sources - there an "installation source" 
may host several catalogues to which you have to subscribe.

With regard to SLE(S|D) we should also check the ZenWorks terminology to 
avoid confusion before agreeing on a specific name...
