IDEA 9 + Maven Repository indexing

Hi,

are there some requirements for maven repositories? When I add the eclipselink repository (http://eclipsemirror.yoxos.com/eclipse.org/rt/eclipselink/maven.repo/ for instance) to the pom.xml and try to update the IDEA index for this repository in the settings, I only recieve the status message "Error" and no further informations/messages.

And another question in the same context. Is the indexing process a part of IDEA or is it a function of maven?

Thanks,
Thomas

I have indexed the http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/ once, and what it did was download a tar.gz file with the index in it, I think. It was around 60 mb. I did the same for a different repo, which was 40mb, so my guess is that a special file is required to be able to index the repo. Probably not much you can do about...
