(a) With time we should have less parent changes. We had a few of them
lately, but I think things will settle. The "parent" is similar to
other dependencies. You don't upgrade them whenever you can, but once
in a while you make a "dependency update round" and you check that
everything works fine with the updated environment. (b) Most time we
change the parent is to inherit some website change declared in the
parent, so we care about this mainly during the release cycle.

>> mvn clean package && mvn install for each project (in the
>> right order, so to not depend on only snapshot repositories)

I saw a typo in my previous comment you quoted: s/only/online/
