The only mention I found was something in passing on last

How do these "capsules" differ from the standard tar-ball?
Is it effectively the tar-ball contents plus the repository meta
data like its description and keywords?

If so, would this mean a capsule can only be used one at import
(but cannot be used to update a Tool Shed repository with a
newer version of the source repository)?

Would it make sense to rename it to "Export capsule for this revision"
or something more explicit with the word "capsule" in the name?
(I'm not sure how long these action names can be, but this is a
little change which would help link the action to the corresponding
""Import repository capsule" menu.)
