Personally, I do not like "Installation Source".  A source is something
that pours or swells on its own, it is somehow self-active.  But
actually it is a depository from the user wants YaST to fetch software
for installation.

In the past, it was a very issue.  It often got confused with "program
sources", "software sources", "package sources", "source code", etc.
Now it is probably fixed for all languages.

Nevertheless we must take action because a different term is used by
other software tools.
