Michael Osipov commented on MNG-6735:

{{#toBaseVersion()}} uses {{#toSnapshotVersion(String)}}. Unpinning.

> In {{ArtifactUtils}}, there is a method named {{toSnapshotVersion(String)}}.
> I am using a project whose released version depends on a pinned snapshot: [https://github.com/jbosstm/narayana/blob/a66d5bd3ebfa96ab7e4142f28960a99b941a30e7/rts/lra/pom.xml#L29]
> This works fine for things like unit tests and so on.
> For various reasons, some of which are good and some of which are bad, we need to copy this pinned snapshot using the Maven dependency plugin's {{copy-dependencies}} goal.  We construct a prefixed classpath entry in a jar file's manifest that refers to this pinned snapshot version.
> When we do so, we discover that although this project depends on a pinned snapshot, and although the Maven shared archiver constructs the manifest {{Class-Path:}} entry properly, i.e. referring to the pinned version, not anything ending in {{-SNAPSHOT}}, the {{copy-dependencies}} goal seems to infer that the pinned version is in fact a snapshot version, and so when the jar file is copied it ends up with a suffix of {{-SNAPSHOT}}.  The end result is that although the {{Class-Path:}} header is correct, no such pinned snapshot version jar file exists.  Instead, a jar file with {{-SNAPSHOT}} as a suffix is there instead, and we get classloading errors.
> I've traced the problem to {{ArtifactUtils}} where its {{toSnapshotVersion(String)}} method appears to recognize this pinned version string as a snapshot, and "helpfully" erases it, turning the resulting jar file back into a {{-SNAPSHOT}} suffixed jar file.
> I don't see any workaround to this problem.  Is there a reason for this helpful behavior?
