Subject Re: Reused local revision?
Date Fri, 13 Feb 2009 20:25:10 GMT
Thanks for the response.  But this doesn't seem to solve my problem.

I'm producing an artifact foo.jar with a revision of "latest".  I'm
publishing this to local.  The first time another project that depends on
foo.jar looks for this dependency it grabs it via the "latest.integration"
rev and copies it to the project for usage.  However, when foo.jar is
republished with the same revision "latest" the other project doesn't think
anything has changed and doesn't appear to be recopying to my project.  I
tried using a latest strategy of "latest-time" and that didn't seem to work

Are you saying this situation works for you?  After all it is very likely
I'm messing something up :)
