Subject Re: [POLL] Incubator Maven Repository
Date Mon, 07 May 2007 04:13:08 GMT
I didn't have a chance to talk about this with Shane but the idea in
the end is to make the repository agnostic on how things are stored
and how the client uses them.
Right now is a simple directory, but could be a database with a web
front end or anything like that.
It shouldn't matter how NMaven artifacts are stored, as long as the
client handles them correctly. A solution we talked about time ago was
to put them as any other artifacts and either developers could choose
what format their local repo is in or the pom could say how they
should be stored

But this is a total different discussion

I could give you my word as a Spaniard.
No good. I've known too many Spaniards.
