Subject [jira] Created: (MNG-5193) Maven-Ranges
Date Fri, 04 Nov 2011 14:50:51 GMT

                 Key: MNG-5193
             Project: Maven 2 & 3
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Dependencies
    Affects Versions: 3.0.3, 2.2.1
         Environment: All
            Reporter: Christian Bittner

Referencing artifacts using ranges, for instance


the most recent version artifact is referenced. This can be the last snapshot (for instance
"1.0.9-SNAPSHOT") or the last release (for instance "1.0.8" if the "1.0.9-SNAPSHOT" build
hasn't finished yet).

Please note: This can be a snapshot artifact even when in a context of a release build (maven-release-plugin),
what I consider a major bug!!!

What we need (humbly ask for) is something like that:


Using "<includeSnapshots>" we want to control, whether the last snapshot or the most
recent release is to be referenced. This should be set to "false" by default.
