Shall we move this discussion over to [EMAIL PROTECTED]  The list has
been quite lately, but the issues haven't gone away.  The repository group
Chair, Dion Gillard, is also a Maven team member.

Last I heard, Andrew Oliver was working on an XML structure to post, but I
don't recall seeing it.  [Dion: can we request that the repository@ archives
be added to eyebrowse, so that we can try to pick up closer to where we left

The question I personally would prefer to see addressed:

Is it possible to come up with a ASF hosted repository that is usable?

I personally would prefer that the question start there than to start
with the assumption that hosting outside of the ASF is the goal.

Define requirements and you will likely find the infrastructure team to
be responsive.
