No I believe the distributionManagement section in the demo profile will override the parent. I just tested with the 0.3.0.Final release and everything worked except for the s-ramp-demos-switchyard demo (unfortunately). But that one failed because it was missing a bit of markup in the demo profile (to re-enable deployments). See: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/SRAMP-237
Ah that makes sense. I actually added that in too to make it work. Also the Workflow Query looks for a SwitchYardApplication while the sample puts it in as SwitchyardApplication, and since it is case sensitive the workflow never fires.
