> Hi,
> The Apache Maven project consist of about 90 (sub)projects. Due to the  
> small number of volunteers and the huge amount of code to maintain we're  
> missing enough space to make real progress on all these projects,  
> including our ambitious ideas for the next major version(s) of Maven  
> itself.
> To be able to gain more focus we need to criticize the current  
> subprojects and decide if it is worth maintaining.
> https://maven.apache.org/shared/maven-repository-builder/ describes the

> quite bad.
> Based on  
> https://mvnrepository.com/artifact/org.apache.maven.shared/maven-repository-builder 
> the library isn't used a lot. Both maven-assembly-plugin and  
> maven-plugin-testing-tools don't use this library anymore.
> The sourcecode looks a bit like it has the same purpose as  
> dependency:copy-dependencies.
> I therefore propose that we retire the maven-repository-builder.
> I don't think it makes sense to do a final release. Instead we should  
> update the documentation and freeze the codebase.
