Is there any package for a Maven repository manager? I searched for some of the ones I know, but couldn't find any. I'm wondering if they are just not available, if they have names different than what I searched for, or, perhaps, if there's some I may have missed.
If you use Puppet to manage your infrastructure, you can use a third-party Puppet module to install Archiva. This will take care of adding the required users, databases and configuration based on official release tarballs.
I don't know know of any Maven repository managers packaged for Ubuntu, but Archiva and possibly others can certainly be deployed on Ubuntu.
Download the standalone version and extract it:
To start it run:
It should then be available at http://localhost:8080/archiva
More advance documentation can be found in the System Administrators Guide to Apache Archiva.
