  Holy crap ... what a monstruosity.
And the reason:

"Additionally, there is no good mechanism currently for validating the
incoming data via the rsync, and this leads to bad metadata that affects
everyone. "

  Put the damn metadata *in the package* and gpg sign it. Either you
trust the key or not is the question, but the problem was solved by rpm
more than a decade ago IMHO !

  Not sure Maven is really the way to go that's seems seriously broken.
