I guess I was doomed to repeat the effort as I was using the default  
maven2 repo run by the maven guys.  Carlos and I spend a couple hours  
on it and still didn't get all the way through.

There is an actual svn repository for all the poms, which get's  
rsync'ed to ibiblio every four hours.  This doc has good details on  
how to help with the maven2 repo 
guide-maven-evangelism.html.  Can you send in a patch?
