Metadata or files plus metadata[edit]

The article says that the repository contains metadata about files. To me, that means the rep does not contain the files themselves, but only data about the files. But later it says that the rep can contain the files. If my understanding of the word metadata is correct, then there is a contradiction here. --Ettrig (talk) 11:22, 19 December 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
