Since when did repo stand for "reproduction" in sofware engineering term? Never heard it around here. East coast.

The abbreviation he used was actually "repro", which seems like something that would likely be shortened in an environment where you say it a lot.

Repro, with an r. I've heard it more the last, say, five years than previously. Also East Coast.

Thanks also that was a typo. First time I have ever heard it was in these comments. We don't ever use it where I work and I deal with customer reported bugs every day.

It's possible I first heard in the OSS world and imported it to my jobs, but I'm not sure.

Since forever.
