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.

ACE actually contains code that scans a directory and (re)generates OBR metadata based on
its contents. Maybe that code could be used to do the same for the archiva jackrabbit-based
maven repository?

Greetings, Marcel
