Moderators of this forum (including a certain member with a seven), hear me out.
I am going to say something that you guys are probably going to hate, but that won't fix the problem that me and other people are having.
I am a 1.7.10 modder, and I am trying to figure out how to change my "http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/net/md-5/SpecialSource/1.7.3/SpecialSource-1.7.3.pom" for my mods, and ignoring the problem is not going to resolve the issue. I have, for over a week, been trying to fix this, but to no avail. You see, I want to make mods for 1.7.10, yet this is becoming a real issue. I need help with this.
Next, you should know that there are people that still want to code and play on that version, and if this doesn't get fixed, then I'll fix it myself somehow. I'll find a way, even if you guys don't want to help us.
