This is something that puzzle me. Either apache projects use maven, and 
we should have a repo to store poms (be it on people.a.o, but with a 
redirection from repo.a.o or whatever it could be), or we should avoid 
using maven at all. These remote repo is totally insane, and out of control.

Currently, ADS build is totally brocken due to modification in repos, 
and it's not going to be easy to fix.

Sorry about that, but I think that we are loosing some big time with 
those kind of issues, which should not occurs at this point of the project.

IMHO, of course ;)
