During the last pulp3 MVP review, a terminology question was raised regarding "associating" content with a
repository. And more specifically "unassociating" vs "disassociate" content. I took an action item to define
those terms in the Glossary section of the MVP wiki which I did. I added definitions along with a brief
definition of a Repository. After doing so, it occurred to me that given a repository is a collection of
content, we may want to drop the associate, unassociate|disassociate terminology and just go with what we
"Associate" replaced with "Add content to a repository".
"Unassociate"|"Disassociate" replaced with "Removing content from a repository".
An example use case would read:
"As a user, I want to add content to a repository."
These terms come from the first days of pulp and I understand the original intent to distinguish between
creating new content and adding to a repository. I'm just thinking the distinction may be obvious and
intuitive and additional terms (that need explanation) are not necessary.
