Ok so Lets talking  about what the goals for a Apache Repository are.

I propose

   * ASF Repository shall
         o only host artifacts approved by a PMC
         o be accessible to the public via http
         o be mirrorable.
         o allow browsing and downloding of artifacts by humans via
           normal web browser
   * ASF Repository should
         o provide metadata about a project,
               + its components
               + its dependencies
               + its artifacts
               + list of version available
               + url's to find specific versions of an artifact.
         o Provide tools for the management of the project metadata
         o Allow for low cost maintance by hand without tool support.
   * ASF Repository shall not
         o Host any artifact in violation of a license, or IPR.
