> IMHO this solution is very bad because of one reason: It influences already released
versions. IMHO mavens "deploy" goal does not put the correct resolved version into the parent
tag. Thus all versions you ever deploy will resolut in corrupt poms because they lead to newer
parent poms as soon as there is a new release an thus receive a newer version name on themselves.

It will resolv V1.0.1 because this is the newest. And know you have to childs, both of them
telling you that they are V1.0.1.
