> Repository updatePolicies are inverted
> --------------------------------------
>                 Key: AXIS2-4290
>                 URL:
>             Project: Axis2
>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: samples, build,site
>    Affects Versions: nightly
>            Reporter: Jason Fager
>            Assignee: Andreas Veithen
> In axis2 parent's pom.xml, in the repositories section, the updatePolicies for releases/snapshots
is reversed from what one would expect.  
> One would expect releases to be pegged at never (or at least less frequent) update policy,
while snapshots would be always (or at least more frequent).  This is because a release should
be considered a static thing, and there should be no reason to update it once it's in a user's
local repository, while snaps could be updated frequently.
> Maybe repositories shouldn't be kept in the pom at all.  The end user can always configure
repos on their own machine; if there are concerns that a user wouldn't be able to download
their needed deps from their already configured locations, instructions on how to update their
settings could be provided.  This would allow the user to decide their own update policies
and would reduce the clutter of the pom file.
