The problem about SNAPSHOT dependencies is, that there's no garantee, 
that they exists when they are used:

- Imagine the snapshot repository deletes all snapshots older than X 
days. So it's very probably that a snapshot isn't available anymore 
after X days if no svn commit force any CI to deploy a newer snapshot.
Hence the TLP pom.xml snapshot isn't online available anywhere. How to 
expalin this to a new user/developer who just did a checkout of the 
shared module and wants to build it?
