Is the symetry between local and remote repositories no longer a desgin
Isn't it possible to find a solution, which will enable at any moment in
time to turn any local repository into a remote repository without any extra
This was ofen very useful feature for m1. If I remeber we had workable
solution for that for m2.

Why some magic strings, which are concatenating timestamp and build number
together are used?
Would not it be better to directly use a properties file with for example
the following (and possibly more) fields:

timestamp: 20040101.100011
build: 10
deployer: brett
profile: qa

Is this solution uniform with another places in maven where pointer files
are needed 
(I mean e.g the strategy how the latest released plugin or another artifact
is going to be discovered)?
