>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven Dependency Plugin

> Netbeans modules are packaged as nbm files (and jars). The nbm packaging is very similar
to a jar except it contains additional files, libraries, resources... The nbms are included
in the maven repositories along side their smaller jar file counterparts, and there are times
when a developer may want to unpack, copy,... the nbm file and NOT the jar file (since the
nbm contains files that may be of use). 
> When I add the xml tag entry <type>nbm</type> to the artifactItem block,
I expect it to get the 'nbm' and not the 'jar' item, but this is not the current behavior
of the maven-dependency-plugin. 
> I have a situation where an nbm dependency contains/packages native libraries needed
for JUnit tests to pass. I tried to use the maven-dependency-plugin to unpack the nbm during
<phase>generate-test-resources</phase> so that I can put a specific mavenized
version on my java.library.path for testing. But, discovered that nbm packaging is ignored
by maven-dependency-plugin.
> The below example should downloand and extract nbm file not the jar file from a maven
