Unfortunately I don't know of any such repositoy. As I mentioned, most properitary components
with individual licenses consist of only one or two libs and the distributors don't bother
with distribuing them using maven. 

Maven doesn't provide the means to stall a dependency resolution and prompt the user for accepting
a license. The only thing you could do is to protect access to the repository. 
One way you could simuplate this would by by starting any turnkey nexus or artifactory server.
There you could deploy some artifacts and configure the repo not to allow anonymous access.

Now someone would need a login in order to fetch the libs. You could link the process of creating
an account to accepting the licenses you want. As soon as someone creates a new account and
accpts the licennse agreement, the nexus account is created and the user could use this account
to access the artifacts.

Betreff: Re: AW: AW: Flex Maven FDK Generator RC1

Is there some other corporate repository or two I can use as a model (especially one that
has proprietary licensing)?
