> Transitive dependencies override explicitly set scope.
> E.g. a project A depends on "Hibernate" with default scope and a project B depends on
project A as well as on "Hibernate" for which it sets the scope explicitly to "provided".
Further an EAR project C depends on project B (see the attached testcase).
> Now I would expect that C does not contain any jars for Hibernate and its dependencies
since B explicitly set the scope to "provided". Sadly this is not the case and C contains
all hibernate jars. The only way around this I have found is setting the scope to "provided"
for Hibernate in A as well - which is just a crude hack that produces other issues.
> IMHO this is a bug because Maven should respect the overridden dependency scope since
the current way forces me to set the scope to provided in A which is just wrong.
> Please try to get this fixed for 2.10 or 2.1 since it's a real pita atm.
