Subject Re: Writing an article and having nothing but trouble...

I didn't think that Maven 1 really downloaded a lot of Maven plugins
during a build.  Can you say which specific downloads are failing?

If you think you have most or all of the needed files locally, you can
run Maven with the -o command to stay offline.  Then whenever
something fails due to a missing download, you can either build just
that module online or manually download the missing file(s).
