It's by design to add additional repos, it's by undocumented policy
that the Incubator has a separate repo.

Agreed, but as I said, we must deal with the status quo until such
issues are fixed.

I'm not advocating that the artifacts be pushed to central. I'm simply
advocating that we find a way to prevent users from having to abide by
the undocumented policy requiring the addition of the Incubator repo.
If the artifacts are mirrored to the right location, nobody will have
to add another repo and the mass confusion will end. It's simple.
