I'm under the impression (please correct me if I'm wrong) that Buckminster currently requires each Maven2 repository it consumes to contain valid maven-metadata.xml resources at all times. Maven itself, on the other hand, will only use this information as a subtle hint on how to best resolve open version ranges such as "[3.1-alpha1,)".

Unfortunately, quite a number of public Maven2 repositories (e.g. SpringSource or even iblio) have problems with the consistency of their maven-metadata.xml files at present:

Thus I wonder: Is there a way to force Buckminster to simply "probe" for matching POM/JAR files of a given Maven2 component, especially if the given designated version of the dependency itself is already quite explicit/unambiguous on what artefact would have to be retrieved?

Thanks in advance,

Chris
