Subject Re: Killing the incubator m2 repository

can you show me a single podling web site where they provide guidance
on how exactly to use the podling artifacts? and hence "overcome the
ill-documentation" caused by the incubator process. Anyone who has
even barely touched m2 knows how to add a new repo to his pom.xml so
this is a non-issue.
