BTW, I suspect many people who have trouble with Maven's apparent net
access requirements don't know about "mvn dependency:go-offline" and
"mvn -o" for offline operation that doesn't try to check snapshot repos
etc. mvn -o is kind of hard to miss, but people seem to anyway; the
go-offline goal is rather less obvious but really handy.
Meh. I'd like to see maven support in fop, but I'm not working with
fop's code much at all so it's hardly something I can claim any say in.
Maybe I should bash together an ant task to spit out Maven artifacts
after a build, though, to make it easier to use fop's existing build
tools to integrate with maven.
