> When the 'mvn --help' command is used, the output for -U states  "Forces a check for
updated releases and snapshots on remote repositories".  This confuses a lot of users into
thinking that this option will update released versions of artifacts.
> Could this be changed to something like "Forces a check for updated snapshots on remote
repositories"
> This would solve a number of problems that I have seen at different sites where people
think they can patch a finally released artifact and it is updated in the local repository
with the -U option.
> Updating the help text would then roll into documentation where the text is copied into
it.
