---------------------------------------

             Summary: Continuous download of maven-metadata.xml for version ranges.
                 Key: MNG-5997
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-5997
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Dependencies
    Affects Versions: 3.2.2
            Reporter: Michael Hüttermann


With every first build of the day, Maven downloads *maven-metadata.xml* from remote repository.
Generally, this is ok since the default update policy enforces an update. But: the daily synced
dependency artifacts are release artifacts, in the declaration form of:
{code}
<dependency>
    <groupId>com.this</groupId>
    <artifactId>com.that</artifactId>
    <version>[1.0.0,1.0.1)</version>
    <type>jar</type>
</dependency>
{code}
So looks like the daily roundtrips are performed since there are version ranges defined?!
Since there are hundreds of dependencies, this takes a pretty long time, and nothing did change,
operationally, because I've already downloaded all required dependencies.

Please suppress these daily roundtrips of downloading  *maven-metadata.xml*, for that use
case, in general a check for new updates should be applied of cause (thus just using the offline
mode is not a solution).
