Yes, you need to set -
for the snapshot repository, even though this should really be set in 
the top-level apache.pom that everyone inherits.

For now, the following should be added to the Genesis pom.xml that the 
server inherits and into any subproject that doesn't use Genesis as its 
parent pom -

             <name>Apache Release Distribution Repository</name>
             <name>Apache Development Snapshot Repository</name>
