I don't know whether I should laugh or cry because you "offered" option 2 at all. I took option
2 and adjusted all the old releases of XStream on the Codehaus repo, but they do not get synced
to the public repo, since the space for the relocation POMs is already occupied by the old
files. It was you who said, nothing can be done about this. Why should the synchronization
of the Apache repo be different to the one of Codehaus?
