Sorry, I must have been missing something then.
I was considering you and me to be in a Q&A phase, with no final advice
given yet.

I'm not sure I understand; I was thinking I was already following his

To wrap it all up:

There's that external upstream project providing precompiled jars from a
common SVN tree, which may change any time.
My current approach is a set of minimal checkout-the-jar projects (one
for each jar), plus a parent pom that provides the SCM
coordinates and other commonalities.
Revision number will be bumped manually, at intervals as the
circumstances dictate.
There's some variance as the SVN also contains sources, allowing me to
compile 13 of the 23 jars myself. To get that, I'd vary the checkout to
pull the sources instead of the jars and let Maven do its compile
phases, giving me a functionally equivalent but more complete artifact
set with source and javadoc jars.
I'm using SNAPSHOT until either I publish the artifacts to a downstream
project (highly unlikely), the upstream project declares a stable
version, or I hit some blocker that's not going to be fixed upstream and
I decide to stick with the last upstream version that works for me.

Any obvious flaws with that?
