  Avalon Repository Package
  =========================
  
  Overview
  --------
  
  This is the Avalon Repository Package.  It provides support for 
  the retrival of artifacts from a set of remote repositories and 
  the construction of application classloaders.  This is core 
  container facilities that serves at the overal bootstrapping
  platform.
  
  Build instructions
  ------------------
  
    $ maven avalon:build
  
  Structure
  ---------
  
  The repository facility is structured into 5 build subprojects.
  
  * api  -- the client API
  * spi  -- interfaces and imutable classes required by a repository
            implementation (in addition to the api)
  * impl -- the default implementation
  * main -- creates a single bootstrap jar file
  * test -- repository test project
  
  Usage
  -----
  
     RepositoryFactory factory = new InitialRepositoryFactory( urls );
     RepositoryContext context = factory.getDefaultContext();
     Repository repository = factory.create( context );
  
  Status
  ------
  
  Build is working and tests are passing.  Some review needed on the 
  getClassLoader operation and assumptions about applications 
  directives versus jar file descriptors.  Basically its not down to
  sorting out details - making sure the API are clean and well doumented, 
  and imporving test coverage.
