Subject [jira] Commented: (BUILDR-288) Add Canonical Maven2 Repository by Default
Date Tue, 23 Jun 2009 00:22:07 GMT


Assaf Arkin commented on BUILDR-288:

Changing the default could be good -- if you meant to do it anyway -- or bad if you don't
want to use stuff from and you might not be aware it's happening because dependencies
that should fail now "silently succeed". It's possible to remove, but it's likely that people
will not remove that which silently succeeds, and so the question is "how bad would it for
some people to accidentally get code from"?

so why not the official, canonical repository at  I think that new users especially
would find this more intuitive.  There is no real loss of flexibility since it is always possible
to *remove* a repository from the array if it becomes necessary.
