Hello,
I am trying to do the simple task of creating a Xtext DSL project in eclipse photon using the new wizard and selecting maven as my build system but its failing out of the box. The error I am getting is below, love Xtext but hate building it, can anyone shed some light on the error and how I can get a freshly created XText project to build with maven in photon? It looks like the pom file generated is pointing to drop repository that no longer exists?

Welll you should replace the s repo with the release one.
Can you show the content of the target file?

It should point to https://download.eclipse.org/tools/orbit/downloads/drops/R20180606145124/repository/

For some reason this is not the case with Xtext 2.14
In newer releases the problem is already addressed

Note that Eclipse Orbit repositories marked with "S" are so-called stable or milestone builds. They are deleted some time after a release repository is available. Sometimes these release repositories are not available at the time of an Xtext release, so we can only provide the latest stable release, which unfortunately break later. This is a chicken-egg-problem.
