We have a couple of configurations, suppose they're called A and B.
Configuration 'A' creates certain artifcats that later must be re-used by configuration 'B'.
In addition, configuration A's VCS roots uses branches (all are monitored by TeamCity).
In order to allow configuration B to pick up artifacts based on the correct branch, it was advised that this configuration not only must set build A as artifact dependencies, but also define a snapshot dependency on build A.
The issue is, that this seems to always trigger a build of A whenever building B.
Why is this needed? Can this be avoided?
There should be an earlier suitable build of A (with same sources) that was already built and artifacts created for it.. Why should another build be kicked, just to run configuration B?
