I'm getting a little confused as to what we mean by module, library,
sub module, repository etc.

My working definition has been:

library - a body code which
a) has more or less a single function or a family of related functions.
b) is the work of one or more library authors who are responsible for the
maintenance of this body of code.
c) is stored in one github repository.

module - Im not sure what this means

sub-library and sub-module - undefined.

What am I missing here?
