Hi David,

not the best idea, since 1.1-SNAPSHOT means implicitly 1.1.0-SNAPSHOT. If Maven has to resolve
a transitive dep and one has 1.1-SNAPSHOT and the other one is e.g. 1.1.1 the latter will
win. I.e. even if you already working towards release 1.1.42, 1.1.1 will stil be selected.
Learned this the hard way too ;-)

Therefore this is the better solution.
