AFAIK it is a deficiency in Maven 1 where a snapshot is looked up from 
each remote repo multiple times. To take even longer.. it checks for a 
snapshot in each repo where snapshots are marked as enabled, and also 
looks for a POM before each such artifact is looked up.

Even Maven 2 looks up POMs for all artifacts before each online build - 
but only once per run/build, and by limiting your repositories you could 
considerably reduce the build time. Also unit tests and general 
execution with Maven 2 (2.0.6) is much faster than Maven 1. Although 
Maven may not be the ultimate build tool, Maven 2 is definitely better 
than Maven 1
