First, as discussed I think we should remove the plan to migrate from the incubation proposal - that migration
will need to happen but it doesn't really impact the core NetBeans.

As to the risks of eventually owning that service, I think Mark's
suggestion to distribute the binaries via Maven Central and hosting
just the metadata makes a lot of sense. I suppose that metadata does
not need to be real-time and could be distributed via our existing
mirror system.

As you indicate, we would anyway need to help find a solution if Maven
Central were to disappear so putting more stuff here does not make
things worse.
