Not sure where you're getting the idea the layout may change. We've  
already had this discussion with .Net folks and the standard  
directory structure for the remote repositories is not changing. The  
problem is with the .Net linker and can be worked around with  
plugins. At least for the Java side of things the version in the JAR  
is never coming off the file name.

If you're referring to something specific proposed for NMaven and a  
different repository that's one thing, but the structure as it is  
used currently is not in flux. Not sure where you picked up that notion.

At any rate the .Net artifacts can go somewhere else until we figure  
it out and doesn't affect everyone else trying to deploy.

We can make a separate repo until the problems are sorted out with .Net.
