Why are you trying to clean from there?  That is only used by  
bootstrap... never intended for any other use.  Maybe bootstrap  
should delete that stuff when it is done.

Sounds like network issues... unrelated to this m2 work.

You only need to bootstrap once... and if you really won't want to  
clean, then you can skip it and run all of the steps by hand:

     bootstrap specs
     mvn -Dstage=bootstrap
     bootstrap openejb2
     mvn -Dstage=assemble

The bootstrap script only exists to help ensure that people get the  
same predictable results to validate the m2 build.  This is a  
temporary script.  There is no way to ensure that everyone gets the  
same predictable results with an existing repository.  You could have  
manually installed bits, or built a local version of a plugin, etc.   
And those little things end up causing a headache to debug.

Anyways, so to really get a build that is highly likely to work as  
expected, we need to have a clean repo.  We will eventually do away  
with the need... but right now as we transition for bootstrap it is  
critical that we don't waste a bunch of time digging into crazy user- 
local repo-related issues.
