Those of you using ModeShape in your own applications or projects likely have Maven settings that involve multiple Maven repositories, including the old JBoss Maven 2 repository. This will continue to work (at least for a while), but you should change your settings to use the new JBoss.org repository. And, you will continue to need other Maven repositories for 3rd party artifacts. Chances are, you’re already doing this.
If you are a contributor to ModeShape (or any other project hosted at JBoss.org), you’ll want to use a different configuration that will download all artifacts through the JBoss.org repository (which in this mode will proxy the 3rd party artifacts). This will be faster, plus it ensures these artifacts are always available to JBoss to build our projects/products (even should other 3rd party repositories disappear).
