Archiva was started in November 2005, building a simple framework on top of some existing repository conversion tools within the Maven project. Initial development focused on repository conversion, error reporting, and indexing. From January 2006 a web application was started to visualise the information and to start incorporating functionality from the unmaintained maven-proxy project.
Development continued through many stops and starts. Initial versions of Archiva were built from source by contributors, and the first alpha version was not released until April 2007. Some significant changes were made to improve performance and functionality in June 2007 and over the next 6 months and a series of alpha and beta releases, a concerted effort was made to release the 1.0 version.
Archiva became an Apache "top level project" in March 2008.
