    jobs = control flow (copy file, send email, .....)
    transformations = data flow (extract data from source, transform, load into target)

    i like to save my jobs/transformations as files (xml) and use a SVN for version control
    its currently not possible to have a version control in a db repository, but this functionality will be added in one of the next releases. before that i won't use db repositories...
