Hi Brett,

Cool - that's good news!

Baby steps for me :)  If the machine stops for some reason, I'll just have to manually allocate
the elastic IP address again.  If there's downtime, we'll just have to wear it until we programmatically
(thru the AWS API) allocate the elasic IP to the rebooted instance.

Yes, using EBS will be my ticket for repo data.  Again, more testing.  The opencsta project
only has a few jars.
For a few other personal projects I'm working on there is a bit more of a dependency list,
which I have not used archiva for being a proxy for so not sure on the space required (javaee-api

If I can get away for the next few months of using the micro instance (minimal archiva stuff
+ no nightly builds, updates etc.) it's a good $7/month spend for getting more acquainted
with archiva.

Thank Brett
