Subject Re: [QUESTION] Is Maven Central part of the ASF infrastructure?
Date Fri, 02 Dec 2016 16:34:55 GMT
No that's perfectly fine as is. 

Apache Maven uses the maven.apache.org domain. It *currently* points to maven.org, which is
co-operated by Sonatype and the Apache Maven PMC. Sonatype hosts the maven.org domain and
pays the servers and all the bandwith (which would cost the ASF quite a lot). Otoh Sonatype
gained a lot of impact and data and thus I'm pretty sure it indirectly pays off for them.
There is a MOU on file between the ASF and Sonatype. It took us quite a bit of discussions
to reach this agreement and it proved to be a good compromise as far as I can tell. 

LieGrue,
