+FAQ and common mistakes
+
+ * I have other repositories or pluginRepositories listed in my pom, is that a problem?
+
+ Yes, the central repo must be self contained, which means that all your dependencies must
be already in the central repository.
+ You need to remove the repositories and pluginRepositories entries and make sure your project
still builds when your local repository cache is empty.
+
+ The only exception allowed is when a dependency can not be distributed from the central
repository due to the license, in that case only the pom for that
+ dependency is required, listing where the dependency can be downloaded.
+ {{{http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/javax/activation/activation/1.0.2/activation-1.0.2.pom}See
an example}}.
+
+ * I have a patched version of the foo project developed at foo.com, what groupId should
I use?
+
+ When you patch / modify a third party project, that patched version becomes your project
and therefore should be distributed under a groupId you control
+ as any project you would have developed, never under com.foo. See above considerations about
groupId.
+
+ * My project is hosted at a project hosting service like SourceForge or dev.java.net, what
should I use as groupId?
+
+ If your project name is <<<foo>>> at SourceForge, then <<<net.sf.foo>>>.
If it's foo at dev.java.net, then <<<net.java.dev.foo>>>

+Sync FAQ
+
+ * Can I provide a sync for a groupId of a third party project?
+
+ If the third party project is not willing to provide a repository to sync from, and you
are a regular user of maven and the third party project, the answer is yes,
+ you can set up a repository as if the project were yours (see instructions above). Please
create a {{{http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MAVENUPLOAD}MAVENUPLOAD}} Jira
+ issue first describing what and why you are trying to do it, and you may be designated the
"unofficial" mantainer of the repository section associated to that project,
+ and you will be responsible of publishing the new releases for that project in your repository
if other users request it. You can opt out at any time.

 Manual upload of artifacts
 
  Note that this manual process is time consuming and <<will only be accepted for a
limited number of requests>>. If you want to upload frequently read the
  section above about automatic sync.
 
+ <<Estimated process time is FOUR WEEKS>>. If you want to use the manual process,
that is the estimated time to process <<if no problems are detected>>.
+ It means that for each version you release and want to upload to the central repository
you will have to wait that time. If a problem is detected it will
+ be notified in the Jira issue and <<you will wait again>> until the next time
the issues are processed.
