I think it would be great if we could make
this happen for all of Equinox.
BTW jobs is not part of Equinox, it
is part of the Eclipse project. What are the next steps?

I have interest!

At the moment we use http urls to be able to get at least started. These

Often these companies do not allow direct access to the internet even for
developers and especially for production machines. So accessing the urls
is not possible.
Additionally they are not cached like mvn urls. So every clean startup
of karaf hits the p2 repo server again.
It also makes it very hard for people to use these artifacts in non tycho
builds which are very common outside the eclipse world.
I have noticed that eclipse already hosts several maven repositories for
other projects. Would it be possible to also deploy equinox bundles into
such a repository or even better into maven central?
At apache this is very convenient. We have a nexus server at apache and
the project poms are set up to deploy their for snapshots and releases
there. Releases go to a staging repo automatically and after the vote you
just need to press a publish button and the artifacts go to maven central.
I am pretty sure we can organize to help with this if eclipse would be
interested to also get such a setup.
The collaboration between eclipse projects and apache projects is still
quite slim unfortunately. I think one big reason for this is the separate
repository systems that make it very difficult to use projects from each
other. So I think tackling this problem would help a lot to improve collaboration.
I have read in another thread that this would be a "complicated"
problem. Unfortunately there is no further information what the obstacles
are. I spoke to quite some people at eclipse about this and they are all
quite interested in maven deployments. So I think at the minimum there
should be an open discussion so people understand where we are with this.
Is there some place maybe on bugzilla where I can read into what was discussed
