I don't think anybody is intending the stop them, and I proposed a way to
let them continue to function (as we move Python out, into SVN, etc.)

Sadly the metadata is shared, and quite soon the <maven entries (supported
by Python, not by Java) will destroy the value of the Java ones. It is
already happening, this jsut makes it official.

I'd love to know if that is true, or not.

I thought that, but with one metadata base it is getting unmanageable. We
could fork the metadata (I think I proposed that).

They still create them (if redistributable) they just don't publish them. I
am working on that very thing. I'd 'guarantee it' if that would grant this
your +1.
