It fails because we didn't specify apache snapshot repository in
<repositories> section at all, only except the root pom.xml.  The build
process will fail even before fetching the root pom.xml because it cannot
fetch mina-build/pom.xml, which is stored in apache snapshot repository.
Please try to check out only mina* directories and run 'mvn package' in
'mina' directory.  It really fails.

Another workaround is to specify the apache snapshot repository to all poms
of subprojects.  I'm not sure which one is better.  Any idea?

The flat structure doesn't have advantage in shortening the whole path, and
it makes hard for people to check out *one* project (e.g. apacheds or mina)
with single command.  And I don't like 'mina-build' directory.  It is not
straightforward for foreigner, and he or she will get confused where the
build starts.
