Re: [equinox-dev] Jetty and commons logging

I won't disagree and would certainly welcome anyone who wanted to create/maintain such a repo.  It seems that someone has done this at maven.org.  The Maven user community should encourage that person to continue doing the work.  I don't really see eclipse.org or the projects hosting another copy of all their bundles laid out in the standard Maven dir structure.  Our mirrors would be upset at the doubling in size and we have to maintain the update site structure for the Eclipse user community anyway.  As I understand Maven, it is at least in theory possible to define different kinds of repos so, for example, Eclipse update sites could be directly accessed from Maven.  No idea what is involved in that but it feels like the right kind of direction.

Having a maven repo would be a really, really good thing for the
Eclipse bundles. After all, it's just a set of directories and some
meta-information (which could be automatically generated from the
bundle's data). If there's anything in the pipeline for a V4.0, having
the ability for the bundles to be consumed by maven users would be a
really good thing.
