Just commited the configuration to point to online repository.
Artifacts are correclty downloaded from there.

Unfortunatly, i can't build easyant itself with build-std-plugin 0.9 as the
build fail with following error :

 Manifest file: /path/to/easyant-core/target/MANIFEST.MF does not exist.

While scrolling the log i can see that manifest plugin is not triggered

Problems seems to come from the buildtype itself, it's a wiring issue. I
haven't identified yet the problem but i assume it comes from this :
extensionPoint="package-jar:jar-ready" />

I will try to fix this tomorrow.
