How to create public Maven repository for free

I needed QuickFixJ 1.5.1 to be available for Maven dependency resolution. Official QuickFixJ repository doesn't contain the latest version of the projects artifacts. In order to allow the other people to build my QuickFixJ 1.5.1 related project I needed to put QuickFixJ libraries in Maven repository available via the Internet.

So I created my "private public" repository on the Google Code Project SVN server. This is approach I know from the Apache Camel extra project where we put missing dependencies from the 3rd parties this way. This is possible since Google Projects allows you to display the SVN repository of your project via the web browser. Useful and free of charge :) .
