Yep. The idea is to be able to develop and publish artifacts with Maven 
and consume them directly from your favorite OSGi container. (or 
OSGi-based IDE ;)

I was hoping that it would be possible to plug in support for 
Maven-based artifacts in any OSGi container so that the container could 
read directly from ibiblio or a special OSGi repository when resolving 
bundle dependencies.

About the caching that will depend on who's doing the caching. If you 
are using Maven all the way through it will do as it does today if you 
use the default configuration, which means that it will download 
releases once, but snapshots on every run.

I will, thanks for listening to what Maven has to offer :)
