I replied to him a few minutes ago.  It is better.  But we still have some
work to do on promoting the idea of a repository (not Maven or any
particular tool, else you alienate users of other tools).  And there are
more critical issues, such as signing the artificts.  If an author is in the
WoT, signs the artifacts and allows you to do the grunt work of publishing
the artifacts in a repository, that would better than if the author were to
put unsigned artifacts in the repository.

Keep calling it maven central, and you'll lose a lot of people.
