Subject Re: from plexus to spring...

Hi Nicolas,

Sorry, I have looked at the recent updates to the code, hence my 
question. Is this 'ready' enough to be used outside Archiva? I'd like to 
integrate this into Continuum.

I think it might make sense to have this module in Plexus SVN repo - wdyt?

Good stuff!
