> Can we get a flag to mvn, which will set all snapshot repos updatePolicy to never?
> I'm trying to get a build that will always use locally installed snapshots, but allow
new deps to be downloaded if needed.  All I can think of now is to create a new profile which
redefines all of the snapshot repos with <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>...
but that gets messy as I need to add a profile to every pom that defines a repo.
> Would it be hard to implement  a simple cli flag, like -nsu (--no-snapshot-updates) which
will just force all snap repos to never update?  This would be very, very, very helpful for
automated builds, when the local repo cache is known to have the right deps.
