Subject [jira] Commented: (SANDBOX-201) [PATCH] minor pom.xml tweak so folks can build this project by itself without any other sandbox components

Simon Kitching commented on SANDBOX-201:
----------------------------------------

Umm, Dennis, the point is that the commons-sandbox-parent-3-SNAPSHOT pom cannot be located
- because the snapshot repository is not enabled.

It's a circular problem - the pom that defines the snapshot repo is only available if a user
has the snapshot repo defined.

This is a general problem that bites anyone working on code direct from svn trunk, if the
component references a not-yet-released parent pom. A general solution to this would be great
- but it's a kind of bootstrap problem; how to find info about the appropriate snapshot repositories
for a project without looking in any snapshot repositories.

For the specific cases of sandbox components, it seems reasonable to me to add the snapshot
repo definition. It could actually be done as standard practice in every pom, but we would
need to be careful to always take it out again before a release. However as sandbox components
never get released that isn't a problem.
