News travels fast... I was going to post about that here this morning :)
New repository: http://www.ibiblio.org/maven2/
m2 can use the m1 structure, but by default it uses a new one. I
believe it is almost identical to the one from the wiki (which I can't
seem to find since the wiki was upgraded?), with the omission of
/$type/ in the directory structure.

Yes, we've taken that approach, starting with Maven:
More about the m2 repository:
- all the metadata have been converted to Maven 2's POM format, to the
best of our ability
- new Maven 1.x artifacts still come in through the Maven 1.x
repository, and are automatically converted and synced to /maven2/, so
for example ASF releases will be published automatically
I think that's all. Let me know if you have any questions or issues.
