What is service repository?

Sri Nagabhirava explains the difference between registry and repository and whether repository is necessary when building services.

I understand the purpose of a services registry, but I'm still unclear as to why I might need a services repository. What does it do and how necessary is it?
Service registry is a catalogue of services which helps in service definition, service selection and in enforcing service policies. Service repository consists of various artifacts/assets about the services including functional specs, user and other documentation and various other service artifacts including SLAs that define transaction capacity, maximum throughput, downtime etc. While service registry is normally used to accommodate run-time assets service repository is used both for design time and run-time assets.
