I will check that out, thank you.

I did that but I also set the checksumPolicy element to ignore to
quiet maven about the lack of checksums in /usr/share/maven-repo. I
wasn't sure if I was suppose to do that for <release> or <snapshots>,
so I just did release and it seems to work.

Doing this appears to pull jars into my local maven repository
(~/.m2/repository) from /usr/share/maven-repo as long as those match
my requested value - which they handily do if I specify the dependency
version as debian. After I saw that I wondered if I'm doing it right.
Should I not use the maven-repo and instead set my dependency scope to
provided or system for deb jars?
