Anyone knows why do we use project="openSUSE:Factory" repository="snapshot" for openSUSE_Factory?

Both G:Factory and G:Next are using repository=standard.

G:Apps is more 'accepted' to be used by users, so we build against published Tumbleweed (higher chance to be installable packages);

the repo name was set before the openSUSE_Tumbleweed became defacto standard and it was never renamed (as this would mean users would have to chase their repo list)

Ah, that makes sense. It confirmed my suspicions.

Yeah, I guessed the naming was of a historical reason. Thanks for the confirmation.
