I've dealt somewhat with the maven repositories, and this is nothing really
that can be prevented in the portstree.  Working with the vendor in
releasing a distribution file of the maven repository at the time of the
release of the code that is required for code to build against is something
that can be done to prevent this. I worked with the vendor in doing this for

This really is an issue with the remote repository, and needs to be fixed
with the owners of that maven code repository.

I suggest in working with the vendor to fix the repository, and it would be
great if you can convince them to release a snapshot of the maven repository
that the code was used to build from for distribution purposes. That way, it
will always be build-able.

Even if they fix it today, someone could break it soon afterwards.
