Subject Re: Incorporation of other Maven repositories
Date Fri, 06 Nov 2015 16:04:29 GMT

Sorry i didn't catch this thread sooner.  I am not supportive of
adding a required repo if it means we need to tell folks to update
their maven settings.  While it sounds trivial it really isn't.  We
should seek to understand better what other projects do for such
things.  Definitely no fast movement on this one please.

The patch is dependent on a lib to add digest authentication that is only hosted there.
