We had a bunch of discussions about this awhile back. I think my 
position was different to others who wanted us to place specific 
versions for dependencies in place.

The general strategy I've been taking is straight out of the Maven User 

When Maven is used to create a distribution of the project the snapshot 
dependencies are resolved to their corresponding versioned releases. 
This way the development trunk is always building against the latest 
snapshot of the dependencies and we stay caught up in our development 
against these while an actual src/binary distribution will stay 
dependent on the specific versions established at its point of release.

Yes, [discovery] looks pretty out of date on ibiblio

Right now the Snapshoot for lang is identical to 2.0 (see file sizes and 
checksums). It should resolve to 2.0 when the distributions are 
generated in Maven.

The snapshot for collections is actually newer than the last version 3.0 
dev release.

Why don't we both document and work out the details for publishing to 
ibiblio for [math] as snapshot and to get the dependencies updated as 
well. We should be getting out dated snapshot src/binary distributions 
as well and make sure these get updated on a more regular basis.
