Prefixes and metadataRepositories are used for locating metadata in
different formats. The former ones are for the old format (JPackage
"depmaps") while the latter are for "new metadata" that is specific to
XMvn. Current versions of XMvn don't support depmaps any longer, so
prefixes are not used. In configuration file format I kept prefixes
for backwards-compatibility, so that trying to parse some old config
files wouldn't lead to parse errors. But I think now it's time to
remove prefixes altogether.
