Subject Re: Developer Repository

Ok, I do like that. I expected a local apache maven repository to be an 
interim solution only. Do you guys have a time frame for repo.apache.org 
coming into existence?

Until then, I'm thinking about the best migration route from ibiblio to 

I think taking over control of the Apache specific Maven Repository 
Contents at ibiblio locally was an important first step.

My challenge now is to deal with the requests to resolve the content 
duplication within and between "java-repository" and the other contents 
"dist" directory.
