Interesting use-case, how do you get the jars? From which maven repository?

Of the main sources of publicly published jars, I cannot find any CloudStack projects or jars
(for all official releases);

In case of ACS, how do you get the jars if you’re not using a published repo and extracting
jars from it?

In case of CCP, they are not opensource (or that their changes/interfaces are documented)
or publish jars on a some maven repository (not to mention they use the same artifact ID etc),
so the only way to get CCP’s jars is to get a package tarball, extract the debs/rpms and
get the jars.

If in future we decide to do something like publish jars on a public maven repository for
GA releases, then we can consider adding -SNAPSHOT otherwise I would encourage pragmatism
over a pedantic approach. By not keeping -SNAPSHOT, we reduce the git history divergence and
deb/rpm build issues we see too often.
