in the idea file ; in my code base, it made my whole project not compiling. I have written
a spec and implemented it, but I'm not very happy with my coding : I found that changing the
idea.rb wasn't easy (xml is changed by reference - side effects, confusion between main dependencies
and test dependancies) and I made a choice (test = ! export) that is not correct. If I want
to be more precise in my implementation, I would be obliged to rewrite the test_dependency_details
method, but I might need some help for that (I'm not a rubyist). I don't know how to add this
as a test, since my implementation passes all tests.

I didn't realize that IDEA supported dependency scope now. That's good to know. (Apparently[1]
it was added in IDEA 9.)

To track this request, you should open an issue in buildr's JIRA. If you want to supply a
patch you attach it there. (This process is required by the ASF.) I haven't looked at your
patch, so I'm not sure if it's the right solution.

> Also, a remark. The CLI API changed : in the past, a simple "buildr idea" was ok to generated
idea files, but now we have to do a "buildr idea:generate". This is inconsistent with the
eclipse plugin (still "buildr eclipse"), makes me think of the infamous "mvn eclipse:eclipse"
(argh ! eclipse twice !) and shows implementation details to the final user. What do you think
about it ? Should I file a bug for that too ?

I agree that it should be possible to do just "buildr idea". You should open another issue
for this request. As a workaround (and this is what I've been doing), you can add an idea
task at the top level of your buildfile:

task :idea => "idea:generate"

That will only work for the top-level task (i.e., if you want to just regenerate one iml,
you'll still have to use idea:generate in the submodule directory).
