Be a good Maven citizen -- Don't scrape the whole damn central repository!

For the last few nights we have had some particularly bad Maven citizens averaging almost 3000 connections in a 10 minute period.

Nexus Maven Repository Loves JSecurity

Sonatype just released Nexus 1.0-beta-5 where the most significant change was the addition of the RBAC and authentication system based on JSecurity.
