it's home is at https://github.com/jboss/jboss-parent-pom
but you shouldn't have any problems getting it from our maven repository.
if maven didn't found it, follow this instructions how to configure it
that parent pom defines versions of maven plugins & some dependencies as well as configures few build things.
So i am not sure what would happen if you remove it.
Okay so this parent element is telling maven to look for another pom, jboss-parent, and maven knows where to find this parent pom because it's located in the JBoss public repository e.g. somewhere in https://repository.jboss.org/nexus/content/groups/public-jboss/?
