> Local test scoped dependencies shouldn't by default override compile scoped transitive
dependencies. If one wanted to exclude transitive compile scoped dependency and have it available
only in test scope, it would be more natural (for me at least) to require user to specify
appropriate excludes section on a dependency that brought transitive dependency with it. In
this case (local test scoped vs transitive compile scoped dependency), requiring user to explicitly
specify excludes section would more clearly state/document the intention, while currently
build tool silently makes a wrong decision (maybe there are times this decision is correct,
but IMO it's correct in far less cases than it is wrong).
> Attached is example project where current in most cases unwanted behavior can be reproduced.
