Subject RE: [RANT] This Maven thing is killing us....

Why not keep the MVN repo in the Cocoon SVN repository like we used to
do with the lib directory?  That would allow close control of updates
only by committers, and with a MVN file repo pointing to the user's
Cocoon checkout, builds remain stable between SVN updates.

Sure that requires again 100+ MB downloads from SVN.  But that seems
more stable than downloading 20 MB from SVN only and then 80+ MB from
shakey MVN servers.

Cheers, Alfred.

A good idea, but I can't see any way in which infrastructure would allow

That is because it would prevent any useful partitioning of resources.
Maven is likely to become a resource hog, and could easily bring SVN
down to its knees. Much better that it only be the MVN repo that goes
down at such a time, and not our SVN repo too.
