Artifact cannot be downloaded by http-lightweight-wagon used (as default) in all Maven versions except 2.2.0, which uses http-wagon by default.
Instead of pom and jar files html files appear in the local repo with content like:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//IETF//DTD HTML 2.0//EN">
<title>301 Moved Permanently</title>
<p>The document has moved <a href="http://download.java.net/maven/2/org/codehaus/castor/castor-xml-schema/1.2/castor-xml-schema-1.2.pom">here</a>.</p>
<address>Apache Server at maven2-repository.dev.java.net Port 443</address>
Only Maven 2.2.0 handles 301 properly.
By the way, I haven't expected such Apache configuration (permament move) in central Maven repo.
As you can see this is not handled properly by almost all versions of Maven.
