I'm into this. Is there documentation for Maven 2 on building that
"redirect". That is,
for some projects, I get a warning that tells me that the "artifact
has been renamed"
or something to that effect.

I've seen the notes below, so SVN doesn't seem like a good way to go.

Is there something we could do with WebDAV to make it easier to get
files up into the repository?

How about ant Ant library & Maven extension that does the client-side
