FYI, some projects do use the metadata.
For example, Geronimo use it to detect the different versions available
before downloading a released jar.
I guess it would be better to have uptodate metadata.

Isn't there any tool for merging two repositories ?

According to jdcasey on #maven, you should be ok by just copying the
artifacts (and the metadata files) over to the sync dir. Released
artifacts are looked up directly, the metadata is mostly there for
snapshot resolution.

Now, it seems that i haven't got the rights to create a directory at
the /repo level. Can anyone help out here?
