Subject Re: How should I migrate 1.4 code to avro 1.5?
Date Sat, 03 Sep 2011 00:18:57 GMT
I got a pull request on github for a change that does this. I'm looking
through it now.

The problem I'm having is that Maven goals fail with the following error:

[WARNING] Failed to create parent directories for resolution tracking file

Does this mean I have to add extra repositories to my settings.xml, or
should those be picked up via the avro poms?
