Speaking w/ my infra hat, there is a strong aversion to single-sourcing 
resources on ASF infra when they can be mirrored or embedded.

I don't think we'd want to host plugins here unless we could mirror the 
repo.  I'd imagine millions of copies of Geronimo banging away walking 
the repo would irritate someone :)

(Also, remember the joke "Don't reboot the JBoss server - Sourceforge is 
down so the schemas won't resolve...")

That's why I suggested changing the model so that there is a simple 
meta-data document that Geronimo the software reads to get info on 
either the plug-in list a set of URLs to plug-in lists...
