Fantastic, that worked great!
Mentioning this tip in the tutorial might be a good idea.

Nate there is a directory in your home directory called .m2. Delete that
If that doesn't work, and nobody else jumps in, its an issue with maven. I'm
mobile abd be more helpful I'm afraid.

Subject: [Lift] Problems downloading dependencies, can't get started
I was very intrigued with Lift, so I tried to work my way through the
Hello World tutorial. Unfortunately, I can't seem to get that to work.
I'm running on Snow Leopard. I installed Lift with the installer
downloaded from the Lift web site (version 1.0.1). When I first ran
mvn jetty:run it tried to download a bunch of dependencies.
Unfortunately, I was in china on a business trip when this happened,
and because of my spotty internet connection, I don't think all the
dependencies downloaded, and I couldn't launch the hello world
Now, I'm back in the states, but I can't figure out how to get Maven
to retry downloading the dependencies. All that happens when I type
mvn jetty:run is:
[INFO] Copying 0 resource
[WARNING] POM for 'backport-util-concurrent:backport-util-
concurrent:pom:3.0:runtime' is invalid.
Its dependencies (if any) will NOT be available to the current build.
[ERROR] BUILD ERROR
[INFO] Error configuring: net.sf.alchim:yuicompressor-maven-plugin.
Reason: A required class was missing during mojo configuration: org/
[INFO] For more information, run Maven with the -e switch
Can anyone give me some advice on fixing this?
