Re: [tycho-user] Using --update-snapshots with Tycho

--update-snaphsots only affects maven dependency resolution.

p2 has no SNAPSHOT version concept.

Tycho uses p2 to resolve dependencies from the effective target platform [1]
This includes locally installed artifacts. Unfortunately, to my knowledge p2 has no strict preference for "latest version" in case there are multiple possible solutions. See the lengthy discussion on [2].

There are some things you can do to avoid the p2 resolver picking lower versions:

- for full rebuilds, don't resolve using locally installed artifacts (using 'mvn install') from previous builds.
  This is done with -Dtycho.localArtifacts=ignore
- avoid referencing several development build p2 repos at the same time for dependency resolution. Only use the latest one.
