That's a bug in the m1->m2 repository converter. I'll check it out.

The repository is scanned every 4 hours and repairs missing/broken
md5s (bearing in mind that we don't consider them as a security
option, but a download integrity check)

I can't think of anything off the top of my head... if you find
something, you can send it through the Maven upload process.

Upload to ibiblio, or upload to an internal repository? You're
definitely getting into optional libraries there - so I'll resurrect
Wagon's ant tasks from CVS and get them working again to offer up, as
I mentioned in my previous email.
