>          Issue Type: Bug
>          Components: Artifacts and Repositories, Dependencies

> When using the new metadata format, remote snapshots listed by locally cached {{maven-metadata-*.xml}}
will always be selected regardless of their relative age compared to any locally installed
snapshots. To repro:
> a) "mvn deploy" lib-a
> b) wait a few seconds
> c) "mvn install" lib-a, this creates a local snapshot that is newer than the remote snapshot
> d) in a dependent project lib-b, "mvn compile -U"
> The -U flag to enforce metadata download is rather crucial as otherwise the feature introduced
for MNG-4326 hides the defect.
> Besides the expected download of the remote metadata, Maven erroneously also downloads/uses
the outdated remote snapshots.
