You are missing out on a much cooler name. Arepa is a tool to manage repositories, and indeed the expansion of the name in the NAME field would fit with Arepo. Furthermore, Arepo is Opera spelt backwards. It's win-win and would make the distribution much more memorable.

Hi Chris! Thanks for the idea :-D The "opera" backwards is full of win indeed. However, I chose Arepa on purpose because of its meaning in Spanish (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arepa), and I've grown fond of the name. I think I'll keep the current name, but I won't reject the ticket for now. Who knows... :-)
