Subject [jira] Commented: (MNG-2315) Add option to exclude all transitive dependencies for a particular one
Date Fri, 05 Sep 2008 14:59:48 GMT

    [ http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-2315?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=147142#action_147142
] 

Matthew Smith commented on MNG-2315:
------------------------------------

While transitive dependencies is what maven is all about and makes it the wonderful tool it
is, there are times when those dependencies need a finer grain control.  Not every pom is
created equal and there are time when it is a good thing to be able to exclude all the dependencies
and only include the few that are really required by a specific use case.  

This is of course the exception, but an exceptional tool should be able to handle the exceptional
cases.
