IntelliJ 8.1 - Redundant downloads from ibiblio.org

When I start on a new project in IntelliJ 8.1.1 and select Spring and Hibernate aspects, IntelliJ proceeds to download Spring and Hibernate jars from ibiblio.org in spite of the fact that these JARs exist in my $HOME/.m2 repository (I've used maven on some projects before).


Shouldn't IntelliJ save a few cycles by checking whether Spring 2.5.5 and Hibernate 3.2 jars already exist in the .m2 repository instead of unconditionally fetching the jars from ibiblio?

Hello.

Actually it is not so unconditional. In new project / module wizard selecting a technology (Hibernate, Spring, etc) makes special Change button enabled. It invokes a dialog where user can pick libraries from the hard disk and make some related settings.

Thanks Alexander. You are right. I suppose I can pick up spring and other libraries from the $HOME/.m2 repository.
