Is there a maven repository for downloading enterprise artifacts for JBoss products which are fully supported and are well protected too?

Issue

  • Currently the off-line maven repository for FSW 6.0.0 does not ship all the other EAP artifacts which are added as transitive dependencies to many FSW artifacts. These EAP dependencies need to exist in the FSW repository itself. Why doesn't Red Hat just put these EAP artifacts as well in there with FSW repository too? Why should users separately download repository artifacts of different product to resolve transitive dependencies from one product's artifacts?
  • Manually downloading the dependent artifacts from separate product is not an option on a longer term since this generates incalculable effort in the future to many users. Even the on-line repository of JBoss Maven artifacts is not reliable as the repository is named with techpreview in its name, even if it contains only stable artifacts. Thus it gives a sense of unreliability in user's mind.
  • The FSW documentation [1] clearly states that the techpreview repository is not supported for production environment.
Important
The set of online remote repositories is a technology preview source of components. As such, it is not in scope of patching and is supported only for use in development environment. Using the set of online repositories in production environment is a potential source of security vulnerabilities and is therefore not a supported use case. For more information see https://access.redhat.com/site/maven-repository. 

There are many users who use only supported software , which are downloaded from supported on-line sources (e.g. fully supported maven repository on-line location), and which are available from secured websites too. The current techpreview repository is only available through HTTP way. Hence, in future these maven repository should be well protected by HTTPS as well.
