[m2e-users] Any way to share the repository index between workspaces?


I'm working with many related projects, having each one on its own eclipse workspace. On each of those workspaces, the m2e plugin downloads the maven repository index into the ".metadata/.plugins/org.eclipse.m2e.core/nexus" workspace folder.

The index files takes around 260Mb of disc space. This is becoming a real problem for me, as having near 20 workspaces takes around 5Gb of disc space for all the (repeated) indexes.

Is there any way to configure where the index is stored?

This way it could be configured on each workspace to use a common place, as it is really always the same index file, saving a lot of disc space, and also unneeded connections to the main repository server.

The eclipse version I'm using currently is:

    Eclipse IDE for Java Developers
    Version: Indigo Service Release 2
    Build id: 20120216-1857
