I wasn't suggesting this for anything but release and snapshots (it  
was an eg, not an ie). For cache: it's a yes/no answer, and for  
checksum ignore is valid.

I'm still confused what that really means.

In the first set, to me, SKIP means "don't ever check for updates",  
since the context is when to check for updates, right? But I think  
you're saying it means "skip the check about whether to check for  
updates and check for updates anyway".

If the question to be asked is "how often should Archiva check for  
updates"? SKIP, DISABLED, IGNORED, REJECT are not valid answers in  
the context of what happens. ALWAYS and NEVER would be.

Or am I asking the wrong question? If so, what is a question you can  
ask and have each option as an answer for that matches the current  


* Should I cache failures? YES or NO. Or it could be "What should I  
do when I encounter a failure?" CACHE or DON'T CACHE. But IGNORED/ 
SKIP/DISABLED/REJECT don't make sense in this context (at least with  
the given behaviour)

* What should I do when a checksum is invalid? IGNORE, FIX or FAIL.

Make sense?
