Subject Re: Making a maven mirror for building aries - properties-maven-plugin refuses to cooperate
Date Mon, 09 Aug 2010 21:41:28 GMT
Hi Holly

I wonder how you config the new settings.xml.   Does it contain any
reference to the maven central repo?  If not, I think we should not
see a message like "checking for updates from central" as it can be
configured to only to download from your local repo or internal repo.
