[opensuse-factory] "strange" repo name after tumbleweed net install

Hi,

I did a net install with the image
openSUSE-Tumbleweed-NET-i586-Snapshot20180914-Media.iso

At the time of installation the current snapshot which was actually
installed was 20180917.

Updating the installation with zypper dup from snapshot 20180919 to
20180920 some days later I noticed:
# zypper ref; zypper dup
Retrieving repository 'openSUSE-20180917-0' metadata ...[done]
Building repository 'openSUSE-20180917-0' cache ........[done]
...

Which means the repository name created by the installation
contains the snapshot date of the original install. This seems
confusing to me.

cat /etc/zypp/repos.d/openSUSE-20180917-0.repo
[openSUSE-20180917-0]
name=openSUSE-20180917-0
enabled=1
autorefresh=1
baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/tumbleweed/repo/oss/
path=/
type=rpm-md
keeppackages=0

Is there a reason for this?
Why not just name it something like "openSUSE-Tumbleweed" which would
somehow better fit the baseurl it contains?

Regards,
Dieter
