Hi Brett,

I looked at ibiblio and found some "official-looking" jars checked in. It seems that we might use javax.jdo as the group name for the jdo2.jar (this is the official API) once JDO is official, and then use either org.apache.jdo or org.apache.db.jdo as the group name for the rest of the release.

If the group name is intended to reflect the actual root package name, then org.apache.jdo would seem correct. If it's not, perhaps someone can offer some pointers to where the discussion took place so I could understand it better.

It'd be great if you can put them up at cvs.apache.org, maybe under a

I don't understand what this means. I don't know how, or don't have
privileges to, publish anything except via svn.

Sorry, when referring to cvs.apache.org, I mean the DNS name of the
web server. It can also be accessed by
http://svn.apache.org/repository/, they are the same virtual host.

That's  the working proposal. We change the group id from apache-jdo to
apache-jdo-incubating and leave the artifact id the same. There's less work
for developers to do to change the group id by global search-and-destroy in
the project.xml file.

Great. I'd really appreciate it if you could use
org.apache.incubator.jdo (later org.apache.db.jdo, I presume). This
dotted group format was proposed some time back and while still lacks
some formal documentation (my fault), was accepted by the majority of
people involved in Maven and the Apache Repository communities. We're
hoping to start transitioning now that we have the tools to support

If there's a tutorial page that explains how to do that, I'd sure appreciate
a pointer. I'm still learning the ropes of maven remote repos.

in project.properties:
