ATM there wont be a need to have TUs access this repo. The main reason
of excluding it from mirroring is to remove it later when we decide that
this idea wasn't that great. We might think about mirroring it later
though..its just the db file anyway as the packages will be kept in a
pool. The only downside is that nobody should actually use that repo.
(by thinking it would similar to Debians experimental)
