> Basically the issue is demonstrated by MNG-2045, but instead of running 'mvn install',
you run 'mvn test'.
> Test classes of dependencies should be resolved from the reactor, just as main classes,
if there's no archive available.
> I'm not sure how to go about this. Specifying a dependency on something with <type>test-jar</type>,
> and having that dependency declare the maven-jar-plugin with the 'test-jar' goal is insufficient.
> Perhaps we can just add a standard classifier that maven is aware of, in this case 'tests'.
The jar packaging
> would export this as a known classifier, and tells maven how it contributes to what classpath.
> Since test sources are a first class citizen, just as main sources are (they have the
same phases, same
> elements in the pom (but differently named)).
> It seems logical to me that somehow the test classes should be made available to dependencies,
> if they declare a dependency with classifier 'tests'.
