  I was glad to see the repo's removed from '/dist/'. Compared to
  the rest of '/dist/' the repo's were messy ; riddled with old
  and unsigned stuff, etc.

  In the past few years, I have sent hundreds and hundreds of nag mails,
  urging people of fix things ; progress was slow.

  To get things fixed in more fundamental ways (fix software, tighten
  goals, allocate responsibility) proved a very, very slow process,
  with an endless repetion of discussions, ideas, expression of good
  intentions, etc. As far as I can tell, maven2 fixed none of the
  consistency or completeness problems, that cause the repo's to
  be below apache standards.

  I'm not enough 'into' maven and other repo-tools, or the mindset
  of repo release managers, to make any suggestions for improvement.
