Please excuse me for hijacking the thread, but I've got another reason
for wanting to "order" repositories.


Let's say there's a repository in the office building next to me,
which is a gazillion times as fast as an "official" one on the other
side of the globe. Now, let's also say that the nearby repository is
slow to synchronize with the far-away official repository.

What this means is that I'd like Maven to first check if the nearby
(fast) repository has the stuff I need and only then fall back to the
slower repository.


PS. Another related problem: I'm currently sitting in Finland. Next
week, I'll be in Poland. A couple of weeks later somewhere else. If
there was a way to set a "preferred order" for the repositories, I'd
anyway have to change it quite often as I'm travelling. Unless...

[begin smoking the proverbial crack]

Maybe Maven could do a daily benchmark--a ping of some kind--against
each repository, measuring the latency and reordering them
accordingly, storing the measured latencies under "$HOME/.m2"?
