EB> Regarding the monetary incentive angle for this. Because bean-validator

SS> Well, the same version of bean validator could very well live in
SS> different repositories during its lifecycle - it would start in "dev"
SS> and move upwards to more stable repositories as we stabilize our own
SS> release.

SS> Being able to decouple bean validator and offer potentially unstable
SS> version as "dev" content would certainly help with some aspects of
SS> content refresh so thanks for bringing this up.

This is an important but nice to have feature for GlassFish build infrastructure. We may work on this after all core infrastructure is in place.
