I agree. I'll fire up the one on the zone again as soon as  
continuum-1.1-alpha-1 is out.

Having a default repository won't help with this. You just won't be  
able to do that for plugins until we fix the versioning aspect, and  
after that declaring snapshot repos is harmless as they are only used  
when requested (like the non-plugin ones in every asf release via the  
parent pom)

I agree, I was just letting you know what I'd done and why.
