yes, that's IMO the way to go. Could some shell script guru set up the necessary 
shell scripts for the sync process? What we need is two scripts on [sub-directory]: Using this script you can set back a 
particular module, e.g. cocoon-core:
" org/apache/cocoon/cocoon-core" Using this script we sync our private repo with the 
official m2 sync repository. After running this script we can ping 
repository@apache to do the sync with the ibiblio repo.

The only thing left is that we should make our private repository available via 
http so that we can try out our releases locally.
