Subject Re: [RESULT] [VOTE] [POLICY] Allow extra release distribution channels like the central Maven repository
Date Tue, 07 Oct 2008 21:06:05 GMT
The central repository is not an Apache project's resource.

We've always discussed issues of the central repository in private  
(except for technical details of syncing other project repositories)   
and as far as policy goes it's the Maven PMC that will sets it.  
Members can see the list and we're fine with that. We already know  
what everyone and their uncle wants and it's unlikely a productive  
discussion will ensue. You just have to look here to see that. We're  
not wasting our time in endless debate. We'll decide, take feedback,  
adjust, and move on. We're actually going to setup a group call to  
discuss the issues on the table. So by next week we'll stuff for  
people to discuss.

As far as Maven development goes, we work like just like every other  
project, the repository is different and affects every project and  
organization. What we are deciding is beyond the realm of Apache.
