SNAPSHOT has a specific meaning to Maven - it will cause it to check the 
remote repo for a newer version (by timestamp) even if a copy exists in 
the local repo.

This is good for daily builds, a nightmare for anything where 
consistency is required.

So when we decide to do a milestone (or release) we need to ensure there 
are no dependencies on versions with SNAPSHOT in them and instead use 
ones that contain a SVN revision number or a CVS timestamp:

bad:    foo-bar-1.3-SNAPSHOT.jar
ok:     foo-bar-1.3-20050401.jar
better: foo-bar-1.3-158653.jar
