The consensus seems to be forming for single level projects. 

Still discussing
/project/version/artifact  vs /project/artifiact-version

I think we should do both a discriptor and a "Standard" artifiact URL , 
so that people can be lazy and have a repository without a descriptor.
And tools can crawl a repository and build a descriptor from it.

Nick Chalko                                         Show me the code.
  Ant + autodownloadable build plugins + needed jars autodownload.
