I am trying to find some information about Milestone releases. Am I allowed to simply take the Milestone jars and deploy them in a production application at my company? I am trying to work with Riak NoSQL database and I can't get Maven to bring in the dependencies, so I would like to simply put them in our repository here at work. I tried to find some info on Milestone releases and how they can be used, but I can't find anything. Can someone point me to some documentation or explain the purpose of the Milestone releases?
