This is a very bad idea! The local repository must be local for every user. If multiple users
share it, they will arbitrarily overwrite their snapshot versions during development and you
run into major troubles.

To prevent that every user is downloading from the internet, install a proxy for Maven like:
- maven-proxy
- proximity
- archiva
and configure the clients to access this one instead of ibiblio.
