the actual remote stuff would be a pretty thin layer, and that most would live in search or

configuration module + the code that is in the web app now)

A lot of this particular one is staging, which I aim to reduce (I'm part way through removing
the additional managed repository configuration as it should be implicit).

I do think most of this is the repository admin, so a repository admin API would make sense…

… etc.

That's instead of calling it a "remote layer" - because a lot of this has nothing to do with
being remote (except that a user requested it… but a Java app embedding Archiva could request
these too).

The tricky bit is perhaps that security is isolated to the web modules at the moment, and
these modules to cover security operations too - these could either stay in the current code
(if it's a 1-liner), or be added to archiva-security I guess.

Does that make sense?
