Basically, Karaf is depending on the 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT of several of the 
bundles as a bunch of normal maven dependencies.   That's a good thing right 
now as they then testing a bunch of scenarios and such which is really 
helpful.   However, that does mean that everything that the 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT 
versions require need to be in the snapshot repo (or other repo they have 
configured).   What was happening is that the parents where being wiped by 
Nexus and thus the Karaf builds were failing to resolve the parents and thus 
the builds were failing.   We just need to make sure that everything we 
deploy into the snapshot repo is really a snapshot for a non-released 
version number.
