No way to specify global offline flag #678

The only way we expose offline support is via the offline profile, which can only be applied at task run time. In order to prevent snapshot plugins from being re-checked we need something "upstream" of profiles.

This works if you put :offline? true in the project. However, the -o task uses with-profiles, which must run after the plugins are loaded. I think there's simply no way to do this via profiles; we can't have tasks that run code before plugins are loaded, since tasks must be able to be loaded from plugins.

I would think that using :offline? true in the project map would be the less common scenario. This seems like an unfortunate side-effect of using aliases and with-profiles to process command line arguments.

Yeah, I'm not saying this is ideal, just that changing this would involve designing a new way to specify the offline flag; it's not a simple bug fix. I'll re-open and change the issue title to reflect this.

Honoring an environment variable here is probably our best bet. I can't think of anywhere else to put it if we can't rely on profiles early enough.
