I'd also like to know whether it's beneficial to keep hitting ibiblio 
to get the -DEV snapshots. Wouldn't it be better to fix a stable(ish) 
version of the code, and then update the maven.xml file as necessary 
when other releases are sent out? Otherwise it will just keep hitting 
ibiblio every time it does a build (assuming that you're not using 
maven -o) which causes some transient errors during builds.

If we pinned some of the -DEV snapshots so that they weren't hit every 
time, I get the feeling that there wouldn't be as many problems created 
during building.

Anyone with more experience of Maven know if this is possible?
