Why? If the repo is the same, who cares?

You don't seem to be using the same internet as I am using.

In the one I am using, there are things like changes made to DNS,
NAT, dynamic IPs, DHCP leases that expire, VPN tunnels and ADSL
links that go down and up, routers that crash or reboot, etc.
So you have to assume that clients and servers change their
IP all the time.

The repository has a Universal Unique Identifier.
That is the primary key we have for each repository.
So we use it as such.

Any type of URL pointing to that repository is just so users
can tell the client where to look for the repository.
The URL itself cannot be used as a primary key.
