Maemo, the operating system of Nokia N900, has 3 repositories of applications. Repositories are Extras, Extras-Devel, and Extras-Testing and in each are grouped the applications according to their compatibility and the result of the test in Maemo.

 

Repository Extra.

In the N900 the repository Extras is pre-configured but is not compatible with the current firmware. The user has to allow this repository before use. Extras is a repository where they are applications that are tested properly and compatible, with a perfect functionality.
