I suspect the route here is to have eclipse prepare a maven repository
following some naming convention that will mesh well with the maven
central repository...and then have the join the many other
repositories that aggregate together into the maven central
repository.  Maven users (like jetty!) would then simply reference
these artifacts in maven central and we should be in good shape.

imo, the servlet-api as it exists as a eclipse bundle would slot into
the maven repo something like...


however I would be +1 for having eclipse somehow indicated in that
version string... maybe 2.5.0.v200806031605-E

^^^^ the javadoc and sources are published alongside the artifact.

So its painfully clear, the jetty7 release we are talking about is
only the distribution that end users download and use...we have
limited support for an update site and need to invest more time then
we have had to improve that setup and be more comfortable having our
update site contain anything more then the most basic jetty server and
client....peer review on that update site is more then welcome :)

so I would hope we would be able to be granted an exemption for us to
include these 2 jsp jar files and a cometd example war file into that
distribution people download....imo pointing over to codehaus for a
couple of artifacts and some instructions on putting them in the right
places in the distribution is a cruddy solution which we'll do as a
last resort...

The timeline we are chasing here is end of July/August 2009....within
the month basically...
