I'm using either my own personal parent pom 1.18 or 1.19 but the light bulb in Netbeans is recommending that I use
version 1.12-SNAPSHOT. There might be a bug in the recommendation engine that doesn't understand the meaning of -SNAPSHOT.
the problem was with parent declarations that didn't have the parent pom in default relative path (../pom.xml) but
didn't use the relativePath element to denote where the parent is in sources (doesn't have to be at all)
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *200906291400* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)

Log: #167711 check the coordinates to filter out parents in non-default locations without the relativePath set
The fix has been ported into the release67_fixes repository.
