Affects Version/s: 6.1.7
Fix Version/s: None
Number of attachments :
The released project 'project' (see for example http://repository.codehaus.org/org/mortbay/jetty/project/6.1.7/project-6.1.7.pom) has repositories and pluginRepositories sections. This repositories section defines snapshots.repository.codehaus.org.
As this project is used as parent in other maven Jetty projects, this definition is pulled in causing my build to load jars from the snapshots repository, I see for example:
This messes up my build environment /causes me to loose control over my environment.
repositories and pluginrepositories sections should not be part of the parent-pom (same probably for distributionManagement)
If such definitions are needed maybe a parent project seperate from the modules/aggregation pom is usefull.
At the very least on release the snapshot definitions must be released
