Nope, never started.

I agree - this was very specifically a target of the architecture changes we started some
time back which now lives on trunk. I'm very happy to work with anyone that wants to add non-M2
repository types. There's still some cruft to clean up, but I think it's close enough to start

There's been plenty of interest externally as well, e.g.:

I'd personally also welcome any interest in OSGi-enabling Archiva itself. I toyed with Karaf
some time ago and liked it a lot.
