We have a spec that has come out of this list, but we also have two 
implementation (Maven and Ruper) that currently work with the "old" layout.

Hence IMNSHO we should help Mark and others in setting up a 
Maven-compatible repository at Apache, and eventually deal with the new 
spec later.

Sander has already given a hand in idenifying some points that have to 
be addressed, it would be cool if we could come up with concrete 
suggestions on going forward and actually helping publishing the jars.

Some action items:

1- how can we make mirroring work for both of us? (IIRC Ruper already 
showed it's easy to do, but I need help from Adam that already tried it)

2- How does Mark think we can proceed in not making it compulsory to 
phisically have jars in a defined location?

3- We really should see that the md5s are compatible between Ruper and 
Maven (IOW Mark meet Markus, Markus meet Mark :-)
