Hello all,

I recall a discussion long time ago about decentralized maven 
repositories. If groupId = a domain name, maven (wagon or whatever else) 
might use http://<groupId>/maven as the remote repository for this 
group's aritfacts. This allows organizations to make their stuff 
available without central repository overhead.

Of course the user should get the organization's public key from a 
trusted source for verifying the artifacts integrity, but this is a 
whole different story.
