Subject Re: Developer Repository

While discussiong things with the Avalon folks concerning their dist 
contents, I'm having the following thought.

www.apache.org/dist is primarily for mirroring Apache certified 
releases, and the maven repository contains snapshots and daily builds 
primarily for Developers (plus releases).

It would seem more logical given this reguard to actually have the 
repository outside of dist in a separate directory like 
http://www.apache.org/repository and have this be separately mirrored by 
ibiblio for the canonical maven repository and others who want it.

Now that I see it, this is placing alot of developer content that may 
change more often than that of the official releases into the apache 
mirrors. I suspect the mirror folks, and mirrors themselves may be 
adverse to this?
