Extremely rarely, but since changes there aren't announced anywhere, I 
have to act as if it might change any day.

I can choose, they're delivering the sources as well as precompiled jars.
No source jars though, so I'll just svn checkout/update in the 
generate-sources phase and let the standard compile etc. mechanisms of 
maven do their thing. Sounds easier than explicitly configuring an 
attach-sources etc. goal.

I build my project based on that.
Whenever I hit a bug, I submit a bug report, which usually gets fixed.
Since my own project is months from a release, that's okay. If I find 
I'm nearing release before the external project doesn, I'll probably 
drop the SNAPSHOT qualifier and hardcode a known good pre-beta revision.
