this probably relates to repository work as much as Maven work.

Currently, if users wish to use a mirror of ibiblio, they specify that as an alternative remote
repository. In m1, this causes a problem because if you add a new repository not equivalent
to that in your project, it is not in the

In m2, they are all added to the list, so the mirror will be used first, but the others may
also be checked. This is better, but still requires the user specify it in their configuration
and it may be used on projects it is never needed for.

It would be good if we could have a repository descriptor at the base of the repository that
lists mirrors. On first use of the repository, the user could be prompted to select any mirrors
they'd like to use, and it can be saved in their configuration for that repository ID.

That way any project listing ibiblio as a repository could actually use, say, planetmirror
instead (and fall back to ibiblio last).
