I have just cloned and tried to build and get a maven error (see below).
I deleted the whole folder from my local maven cache with the assumption the download was corrupted but i got the same error.

java 1.6
maven 2.2

Any advice would be great. can't wait to get involved in this very exciting project

That site doesn't appear to exist, which explains why it can't pull any files from it. Perhaps you overrode the default in your ~/.m2/ directory?

Yes sorry, my bad. I had my work maven repo configured and was not connected to the office vpn so it failed. How obvious in the sober light of day.


No problem. :)
