Does the sbt plugin not read from the repositories file correctly? We have a proxy repository defined as specified here: http://www.scala-sbt.org/0.13/docs/Proxy-Repositories.html.
The file is pretty simple. Something like:
typesafe-ivy-releases: http://repo.typesafe.com/typesafe/ivy-releases/, [organization]/[module]/[revision]/[type]s/[artifact](-[classifier]).[ext], bootOnly
When I launch sbt from the command-line everything works correctly. When I run sbt import, it appears to only check local and maven central. Artifacts not defined in maven central aren't resolved. This means my company's locally published artifacts and a few others (lift widgets 3.0 snapshot, for example) cause the project from importing correctly.
I get an error that it couldn't resolve the artifact and that it only checked in local and public.
