Ha, this is the second time I come up with a name that has a "second" 
meaning in American. I had already decided to stop giving fancy names to 
things to stop this happening, so I simply did repo-sitory->repo, but 
it's still not working ;-)

Then I'd call it Ruper for now, which is the name of the initially 
proposed codebase, where Ruper = resource updater.
