Example

Having the file mavenrepolist.txt content:

https://repo1.maven.org/maven2/
http://repo2.maven.org/maven2/

And the piece of settings:

<mirroredurl name="mirrored-maven" m2compatible="true" mirrorListUrl="file:///Users/me/dev/repo/mavenrepolist.txt">
      <artifact pattern="[organisation]/[module]/[revision]/[artifact]-[revision].[ext]"/>
</mirroredurl>

It will resolve first on the repo1 and if failing it will fall back on repo2.


The mirror list can be retrieved from a geo-location aware URL:

<mirroredurl name="mirrored-asf" mirrorListUrl="http://www.apache.org/dyn/closer.cgi">
  <ivy pattern="repo/[organisation]/[module]/[revision]/ivy.xml"/>
  <artifact pattern="repo/[organisation]/[module]/[revision]/[artifact]-[revision].[ext]"/>
</mirroredurl>
