Hi Rick,

In the JDO project, I define a dependency  on Derby via maven pom:


In order for me to test your snapshots, there's a lot of manual stuff  
to do, downloading the jar, unzipping into a directory, copying the  
jar files into my local maven repository; and then I get run my  
scripts to actually test the bits.

Would it be possible for you to post the snapshot bits to a maven  
repo so I can just point maven at it and automatically get the latest  
snapshot for testing? We have done this for JDO jars and it works  
great. We put the JDO release artifacts into e.g. people.apache.org/ 
and point maven.remote.repo at people.apache.org/~clr/dist/java- 

With the Derby jar files posted in this way, we could contribute more  
easily to the testing effort.
