Document the purpose of `localrepo` #982
As it is unclear how this is intended to be maintained, I left the file untouched, but it may need to be updated as well.
the localrepo and its content needs to go away COMPLETELY for the release
we have already a project https://github.com/jruby/joda-timezones
there is another idea about a timezone provider around:
so the purpose is a temporary hack to get away the build_lib directory.
the joda-timezone still needs some attention on "how" we are going to do it
requireTest is unclear for me - i.e.from where it comes from - could not
joda-timezones has not moved forward because I got wrangled into writing a more comprehensive solution for joda-time. jsr292-mock has not moved forward because the author updated it to use ASM 5, which is not release is probably will not be released until after Java 8.
So I think both of these need to just get pushed under jruby groupId, with joda-timezones just supporting the one we want to ship with for 1.7.5 and jsr292-mock being just a binary release for now. Hopefully for 1.7.6 we can get them released as proper artifacts under the right orgs.
