I have read that versions setting is no longer executed and is ignored in Maven 3 or later, as explained here: Non-unique Versions. And by design, Maven 3 or later will always produce time stamped SNAPSHOT versions.
When I build artifacts though, I have some artifacts that only produce the base SNAPSHOT version, even if I build it multiple times, there .
After building some artifacts, in my local repository there will be that base artifact-SNAPSHOT file that I built, and a few other time stamped versions of the same artifact. There is the base artifact: artifactID-22.214.171.124-SNAPSHOT.jar, and then there are others in the same directory with versions appended to them: e.g. artifact-126.96.36.199-SNAPSHOT-20160120.192041-37.jar.
I don't want the time stamp files built and put into my repository, as it only eats up disk space. I would like to figure out how to only produce the base 188.8.131.52-SNAPSHOT version and nothing else.
Other than writing a script to deleted these accumulating time stamped artifacts, Has anyone figure out a way to disable them completely so they are not created in Maven 3 or later?
