Other than the fact that I spent about 6 hours trying to get Clover working and ultimately
failed. I'm guessing this is the reason why.

And the chasing my tail I've experienced because I've built the project without remembering
to 'install' it every single time.

If this convoluted and non-standard way of setting up a project is all to work around this
one bug in maven (I have no idea why it would need to download the parent pom anyway), then
I suggest we let end-users complain to the maven developers. I've wasted many hours on reading
the crappy maven docs and trying to figure out what is going on. How to selectively disable
modules so that this can work again:

or why this isn't working:

Right now I'm over it. If anyone else can get the project to build the same way twice in a
row, please have my blessing to go and change the Hudson configuration.....
