Subject Repo Goals
Date Thu, 30 Oct 2003 18:41:53 GMT
Ok so Lets talking  about what the goals for a Apache Repository are.

I propose

    * ASF Repository shall
          o only host artifacts approved by a PMC
          o be accessible to the public via http
          o be mirrorable.
          o allow browsing and downloding of artifacts by humans via
            normal web browser
    * ASF Repository should
          o provide metadata about a project,
                + its components
                + its dependencies
                + its artifacts
                + list of version available
                + url's to find specific versions of an artifact.
          o Provide tools for the management of the project metadata
          o Allow for low cost maintance by hand without tool support.
    * ASF Repository shall not
          o Host any artifact in violation of a license, or IPR.
