> That definitely sounds interesting. The "OBR" that is included in ACE consists of a couple
of bundles. By default we include these as part of the ACE server. They can also be deployed
in a stand-alone OSGi framework. Option number three is not using them at all but instead
hooking up to an external repository that exposes the same OBR metadata.

Coincidentally, I had a discussion yesterday with a student of mine who 
is working on a diploma project using ACE OBR, which for our purposes 
would need the indexer core (that re-generates OBR metadata) to be 
extended.  We thus thought of factoring the indexer code out into a 
separate bundle/service.

Would such a refactoring help to use OBR interface with the archiva 
repo?  If yes, we could offer some help.
