Each repository in Phabricator can be associated to a short callsign. You can choose one at repository creation time, or configuring it later.

Here is the callsign naming convention adopted by Software Heritage.

    • C: CI related repositores (jjb, Dockerfiles, etc.)
    • D: Development repositories (e.g., Python modules)
    • M: project Management repositories
    • P: Packaging repositories (e.g., Debian packages)
    • S: Sysadm repositories (e.g., Puppet stuff)
