IMHO we should get this in sync with the "official" documentation, which
is the reason why I'm CC'ing the documentation mailinglist.
(I also removed some lists from CC because I'm not subscribed there.)

@Documentation team: Is there an "official" german translation for

BTW: My personal opinion is that "Repository" should also be used in the
german wiki. I don't really like the idea to use "Depot".

Thanks, Christian.

Both for the answer with your opinion and for forwarding this issue.
I think it is a good idea to inform also the documentation team and give
them the possibility to participate in the discussion (in my view most
wanted on ).

If it can help, here in Italy we maintain the name "repository" as is. ;)

In Danish we use the equivalent of "software source".

And we try to keep this consistent across YaST, zypper, Synaptic, gnome-
packagekit, KPackageKit etc.
The idea of an consistent use about all openSUSE subproject was what
made me think that (cross)posting here would be an good idea.

The situation in the German wiki is in short (and maybe not objective
- as I would be for Repository, Repostorys):
- In the old wiki were several words used with no real schema to
see/guess for me: Softwarequellen (ca. software sources), Paketdepots,
depots and sometimes also 'Repositories'.
And I thought that this would confuse the reader.
- The one-to-one equivalent to the en: repository, repositories would
be de: Repository, Repositorys - but these words are nearly not used
in the normal German language.
- When the transfer of the article(s) to the 'new' wiki (structure)
was done there was apparently problems with the correct wring of a
more to the English words orientated translation
(even more that in the German versions of the openSUSE software).
- If someone is using a foreign word out of the English language in
German -> there is an old and now official rule the the y has to stay
-> de: Baby, pl.: Babys and so on
- So I asked in the German wiki what the other writers think.




der gebräuchlichste Ausdruck hierfür wäre mE "Archiv".
