Subject Re: versioning and naming, and a checkout issue

Yes, that is a flaw for which I haven't found a good solution. Because 
if this, and because it is not always to the best way to add a child 
repository by the child-repo pom, the build procedure is not really 
smooth right now.

Again, I agree with your arguments and with your solution :-)
