How ? afaik, it will use *all* repositories defined in my and any transitive dependent projects to try and resolve dependencies which causes nondeterministic resolution.

Thats at least what http://www.sonatype.com/people/2009/02/why-putting-repositories-in-your-poms-is-a-bad-idea/ talks about and what i've seen everytime I've used projects that had repositories listed in their pom's.

Afaik this is the only way to actually work around this problem of foreign repositories get into your build ? do you know of something better ? :)
