[m2e-users] Version ranges, resolving workspace projects

When using maven 3.0.3 in M2E version ranges works to some extent and is sufficient for our needs.

However how it resolves snapshots when taking into account projects in your workspace I think could be better.

For some reason in Maven 3 you cannot setup non-unique snapshots. Snapshots installed/deployed always have a timestamp attached to the artifact name regardless if you specify in distribution management that the snapshot repo should create <uniqeVersion>false</uniqueVersion>


I have a project "A" in my workspace at version 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT

I have another project "B" in my workspace that depends on project "A" [1.0.0-SNAPSHOT,2.0.0-SNAPSHOT)

M2E correctly gives me project "A" as a dependency for project "B"

However, if I install/deploy project "A" then M2E will always give me the timestamped version of project "A" as a dependency for project "B".

I believe it should continue to give you the SNAPSHOT version from your workspace, since if I make code changes to project "A" I have to keep installing it so project "B" picks up the latest.

Your thoughts anyone?
