as Chris mentioned, the new pepository focuses on automatic 
resolving of device calibrations to ICC profiles. That happens already 
with Oyranos on a local computer. The new project extends now to the 
internet for easier exchange and distribution.

The repository shall not cover any of the reference profile as hosted on 
the ICC site. It will have as well no means by design to deliver default 
or assumed editing spaces like sRGB or FOGRA condition based ones.
The ICC website is the first reference for this kind of profiles.
