What does the _vendor suffix mean in a package name?

There are many repos in ROS index named something_vendor and also many named something_cmake_module.

  1. What is the purpose of a vendor package?
  2. What does the "_vendor" suffix mean versus just calling the package, e.g. 'gmock`?
  3. When is it appropriate to have a vendor package versus a cmake_module package?
