Grails 2.3 (2.3.7) - How to globally add a maven repository and its credentials inside the ~/.grails/settings.groovy?
I think this is relevant in the Grails dev forum too, because IMO the issue is a bit critical.
This is the final configuration I came up with to address this issue and
be backwards compatible at the same time. Unfortunately it looks like
it breaks the SNAPSHOT dependency management and it will always take the
latest you have in your local repository instead of checking first your
remote repository .
