We need the ability to enforce searching for specfic artifacts (for example, artifacts with a certian group id or a group id matching a wildcard) from specific repositories
- We use both public and local repositories. For security reasons I want maven never to search public repositories for our internal artifacts as I do not want to reveal there names
- Performance. If I have to use several repositories and I know in advance where certain artifacts can be found, I would like to use this knowedge not to search in vain.
If maven maintainers are ok with the idea, I can go ahead and write a design document
