Re: How to handle schema dependencies
We might add a protected Schema.Parser#getName() method so that folks
could subclass Schema.Parser to look for names in the environment,
then use such a subclass in the Maven Mojo implementations.  Please
file an issue in Jira if this is of interest to you.

And one would need to track these avro dependencies manually. It would be great if the avro-maven-plugin could have configuration items  specified like "com.example:common" and those artifacts would be searched for compiled avro types using something like the code I posted earlier in addition to the normal parser name resolution.
