Nexus auto-blocks repositories too aggressively

    Details

      Description

      This repository returns 404 for requests to the root:

      http://jesperpedersen.github.io/fungal/maven2/

      But it is a valid repository, for instance, this artifact retrieval works:

      http://jesperpedersen.github.io/fungal/maven2/com/github/fungal/fungal/0.10.0.RC2/fungal-0.10.0.RC2.jar

      I don't see the point of auto-blocking in this case. A 404 from the root doesn't tell us much of anything about whether or not a remote repository is valid, and it isn't hurting Nexus in any way to receive a 404.

      Expected

      NXRM auto-blocks when:

      1. 5xx responses from the server
      2. 401 response
      3. 407 response
      4. Exceptions as currently handled.
