Maven has the concept of a 'SNAPSHOT' jar, which is the latest 
date-timestamped version of an artifact available.

If tell Maven you depend on a SNAPSHOT, at each build it checks to make 
sure you have the latest available, and downloads the new one if needed.

This however doesn't fix the problem, as people can change version numbers 
on jars to anything they want, possibly a fictitious release.

'LATEST' builds are often not reproducible as well.
