Subject Re: Managing Modified Dependencies
Date Mon, 04 May 2009 20:17:33 GMT
As the initial scenario doesn't mention it, I would like to stress the
step of submitting the patch to the owner. This should as least make
it feasible to get fixed quickly at the source.

In any case, the two important things I think are to keep the original
groupId and artifactId (which was NOT the recommended way some time
ago), and also to define dependency versions through
dependencyManagament (so that there is just one place to change).
