Not really, it does more... and to some extent less (IIUC it does not 
yet use distributed repositories).

I know JJAR quite well, as I have been using it and proposing for quite 
some time, and I also had some patches ready, but then we decided to 
follow the Maven repository format not to duplicate repositories.

Maybe you should seriously think of putting JJAR on the table and join 
both the and the Repo efforts  :-)

So ok, the Repo project would start with Ruper, Greebo, Maven-fetch, and 
JJAR as starting points. I didn't count JJAR in as it has been still for 
so long.
