well, I don't think I match your description, but I did encounter an
other issue when doing the same kind of build today

my analyses:

1.0-RC is not available in the non-snapshot repositories

however, as it doesn't have a 'snapshot' marker in the version name it
is never looked for on other locations

so I had to additionally put in this trick:

svn diff

to get things working

the error I got also shows the explicit dependency you're adding should
not be needed since it's recursively called for from the
commons-javaflow pom (which seems to work in my case)

by the way: cocoon-core has a similar setting for getting non snapshots
from apache's m2-snapshot repo, so that is why adding the dependency
there pulled down the 1.0-rc... eventually making it available to
javaflow-impl later on during build...

now, to solve things I think we better
- ask jci peeps to publish non-snapshot releases on a public repo (this
includes RC-releases)

- or just add my patch to the pom, rather then yours, no?

I hear your pain, but I think this is a consequence of the Snapshot
handling in maven

we've moved away from an own ./lib/**jar section to this new repos
approach with a documented layout serviced by repo-hosts on the web

given the nature of the web this is leading us naturaly into stale-scale
 type solutions of various mirrors and caches in the process that are
all making sure the complete build env is not as guaranteed as was the
case with the good ol' massive ./lib/**jar per project in svn

having said that however, good url management in this repo layout DOES
ensure that if you have a file, it will be the same file for anyone (if
you don't have it though look, not unlike you didn't het the complete
lib synced from svn)

helas this good url management does not help us out in those cases where
people are using snapshot dependencies

(theoretically) just removing all snapshots from your local repo should
be enough to bring you into a 'clean' state

(practically) this also means people don't ever go a about changing or
removing non-snapshot-artifactids after being published on a public repo

would be great if dull tasks like this could be handled in an automated
way via something like continuum in stead

well, to my experience, having your own in house maven2-repo-mirror
helps as well (for one, it makes it easier to just rm -rf that local
repo and get stuff back in fast)
