But where are they on ibiblio? I can't find them. They used to be in  
"java-repository" at http://mirrors.ibiblio.org/pub/mirrors/apache/ 

So maybe they are no longer available as separate downloads, but  
available only by maven?

We used to publish the jar files as maven artifacts that could be  
downloaded directly by a user by following a link to a mirror site.  
Or maven could fetch them all by itself.

Our .cgi script contained e.g.
<a href="http://apache.roweboat.net/java-repository/javax.jdo/jars/ 
[<a href="http://www.apache.org/dist/java-repository/javax.jdo/jars/ 
[<a href="http://www.apache.org/dist/java-repository/javax.jdo/jars/ 

So I'm still confused.

And I'm now on the repository@ alias.
