Subject Re: Repository Integration Plan with existing tools
Date Sun, 12 Aug 2012 00:18:56 GMT
IMHO it would make considerably more sense to use the sonatype aether api to pull artifacts
directly from maven repositories instead of using a source control system to deliver binary
artifacts. That's my two cents, for whatever it is worth.

However, the API is simple enough to easily implement in either Git or some other version
control system and doing so might give you a lot of benefits, such as free replication, etc.
