Good question. I don't believe we are deviating from the same 
requirements for java-repository as for the rest of the 
"" directory, and for which I'm not fully well 
versed. I can tell you that there is "0" resistance to a file getting 
placed into the repository on the ibiblio side, they could care less 
what we put there. Maven folks care much more, but less than Apache 
proper I believe.

So, any "process of voting" etc is an Apache detail. Does "Dist" require 
two VOTES to release a file? If it doesn't, I do not believe there 
should be a second vote.

Now, packaging, Signing etc are another issue. Before you insert content 
into the java-repository, it is wise to set it up in a staging area 
(your home directory), get all your signatures and md5's in place show 
it to the group for a quick concensus (or just a second set of eye's). 
Java-Repository is mirrored across all the Apache Mirrors, as such its 
important to minimize errors so that we don't get Fragged to death on 
the Mirrors list... ;-)
