The honest answer is no, this is not clear at least for me, I just tried to
make sure in the two main cases: when a specific version is given to the
snapshot, and when SNAPSHOT is used. The code to parse maven-metadata.xml
files is very simple, and can't be of any help in this case. I guess the
most reliable information can only come from Maven guys.
