Subject Re: Making a maven mirror for building aries - properties-maven-plugin refuses to cooperate
Date Tue, 10 Aug 2010 15:36:11 GMT
I would suggest trying to specify a local central mirror first -

If that doesn't work or you need repeatable builds (like for production
usage) then I'd suggest going with Nexus, which is easy to setup as a
caching proxy for all of the repos your builds need.
