Archiva works like an http proxy, when a mvn program requests an 
artifact from it, archiva will then try to download the artifact from 
one of the proxied repositories until it finds one.  You can't have 
archiva get artifacts unless there's a request for it.

There is a tab named "Browse" on the left panel which you can use to 
access proxied artifacts.

Unfortunately, not yet.

When adding a proxied repository, there is combo box in there that asks 
you to which managed repository will artifacts from this new proxied 
repository will be stored.
