mvn [ERROR] Failed to execute goal on project tomcatplugin:

I'm trying to follow instructions at and I've downloaded and unzipped the plugins package and run maven in it with this command:
mvn -Dmaven.test.skip=true package
however it's throwing this error:
[ERROR] Failed to execute goal on project tomcatplugin: Could not resolve dependencies for project org.red5:tomcatplugin:jar:1.7: Could not find artifact net.sourceforge.groboutils:groboutils-core:jar:5 in sonatype-snapshots ( -> [Help 1]
I don't know what this means or how to resolve it. I have searched on google but haven't found any solution. Is this a problem at the github site? or is it at my end?
attached is a maven-run.txt which is the full console output showing the error. Thanks for any pointers.

It means maven can't find a defined dependency (either in your pom or in the pom of an included dependency - in this case, probably the tomcat plugin) in its available repositories. Google the jar it can't find and add the repo to your pom.

thankyou for your response kmhuntly, apologies for my delay in replying. I've got this project on hold for the meantime pending another solution so if that falls through I'll be back to follow your advice.
