layout.conf vs repo_name

Talk status
This discussion is still ongoing as of July 3, 2016‎.

How is this better than `metadata/layout.conf` specifying `repo-name` parameter?

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Repository_format/metadata/layout.conf#repo-name takes precedence over `profiles/repo_name`. Does it mean `profiles/repo_name` is deprecated and not needed at all anymore?

https://wiki.gentoo.org/wiki/Overlay/Local_overlay still suggests creating `profiles/repo_name`. — The preceding unsigned comment was added by Lkraav (talkcontribs) 10:32, July 3, 2016‎
