Not until you forwarded a message (and thanks for doing so). We don't 
really have the bandwidth to follow along with everyone that is 
converting builds...

I think we all recognise there are some issues, particularly with 
ibiblio dropping out consistently, and also issues with transitivity and 
versioning that have been raised on the dev@maven thread. I'm not sure 
what "messed up repository" issues you are having, but would like to 
hear about it.

I know this stuff needs a good hard looking at, but I don't believe 
there is anything insurmountable here.
