   The first step is to setup your administration user. The password requires a numerical
character and must not be
   longer than 8 chars. You'll then need to log in. User 'admin' as the username and the password
you've entered.
+  At this point, Archiva is fully functional - you can use it with the default repositories
and guest user. You might like
+  to explore the user and administrator guides to find other functionality.
+  The default configuration for Archiva configures two repositories:
+    * <<<internal>>> - a repository for containing released artifacts.
This is connected by proxy to the central repository, so requests here will
+      automatically retrieve the remote artifacts.
+    * <<<snapshots>>> - a repository for storing deployed snapshots. This
is not proxied to any remote repositories by default.
+  In addition, the guest user has read access to these repositories, so you can make anonymous
requests to either. To try this out, point a web browser at the following URL: 
+  {{{http://localhost:8080/archiva/repository/internal/junit/junit/3.8.1/junit-3.8.1.jar}}}.
Though the artifact is not present locally, you will see in the Archiva logs that it is 
+  downloaded from the central repository, and then handed back to the browser and downloaded
from Archiva. Future requests for the artifact will be much faster as they need not be
+  downloaded from the central repository.
+  Once this artifact is downloaded, Archiva automatically indexes it, so you can access it's
information at the following URL: {{{http://localhost:8080/archiva/browse/junit/junit/3.8.1/}}}.
+  It will also be available from the search interface.
