I mean in the public Maven repositories...we only care
to update our repository when we need something
fixed....

We'll all have the same local file system based repo,
based on our common hosted repo...So we point Maven to
our repo, and maven creates the local repo on each of
our machines, that is just mirroring our common repo.

So this is what ApacheDS Maven installation would be
configured to do.

Or we just provide a little tutorial that says set
maven up like this so that you are using our "Quality
Controlled" Repo....

Cool....people.apache.org is probably the best one...

We need to point Maven at our common repository
only....So that our local repository stays "Clean" Man
