+1 to these with some questions and additions: 4) document this as policy somewhere and make it known to all PMCs. 5) likewise document use of cvs.apache.org/repository for deploying SNAPSHOTs to and any archival policy in place on this (is there one?) Q's: - is it ok to add a FAQ to Maven and/or elsewhere advising people how to get old JARs they've lost (particularly in relation to building Maven 1.0.x)? I would suggest wording it such that you manually download them rather than adding it to maven.repo.remote or we'll have people adding archive.apache.org to their global build properties by mistake and hitting it all the time. Or is that not a concern if they are generally only going to be receiving a 304 or 404 response? Thanks, Brett
