What's the "ANACONDA" partition?

Just noticed when I use Etcher to make Qubes installation media it creates a separate “Anaconda” partition on the USB? What is this?

short answer is, just a label name.
another short answer is, it’s a anaconda installer.

Long as it’s supposed to be there I’m all good with it, just checking

when i mean short, its really short, there’s nothing you should aware of, because it’s just a label name, and there’s a content of anaconda installer that makes we could install easily.
