It is the fact that builds of geronimo must download artifacts from  We have worked very hard with other projects to
make sure that all downloads point to the mirror system.  Otherwise,
our bandwidth requirements would be many times what they currently
are.  geronimo is circumventing this system.

behavior", although I was being a little dramatic calling it a DoS.
If more than a few clients at a time were doing this, it certainly
would have an adverse effect on our service.  This is a different
issue than the use of non-mirrored infrastructure for downloads.
