Subject Re: [ANN] Archy - a simple frontend to archetypes
Date Tue, 01 Aug 2006 01:05:30 GMT
The repository manager in Maven SVN indexes any repository, so it's a
simple Lucene query of: "type:maven-archetype"

If we put an appropriate web front end on that, you could pull down an
up to date list at any time. The central repository will have that
available very shortly.
