[hibernate-dev] Can we have an update on Maven central repository syncing?

The JBoss repo is somewhat messy, yes.  But so is central (new to you or
not), were they routinely allow artifacts to be moved around...

The JBoss repo was set up incorrectly as the person who manages it
eagerly agrees.  Originally the "duplicates" were copied because JBoss
wanted (gasp) reproducibility to their AS builds; and since the maven
team allowed artifacts to be moved around after deployment that was not
really an option relying on stuff from central.  But really what should
have been done was to have 2 JBoss repos: 1) for "duplicates" from
central and 2) one for JBoss published artifacts (hibernate et al).
That's actually what I am more interested in seeing happen.
