> Hi, I would like to suggest an improvement to the way in which <scope>import</scope>
dependencies are handled.
> Currently, if I have four projects:
> * 'version' which sets a dependency on X with a version of Y, and is a parent pom
> * 'depender' which inherits from 'version' and declares a dependency on X
> * 'provider' which manages X to scope provided
> * 'last' which depends on 'depender' and imports 'provider's managed dependencies
> then the 'provider' definition is ignored and 'version's is chosen.
> The use case I'm trying to achieve is where some dependencies are excluded from a plugin's
activities, and using <scope>provided</scope> is the best way for me to achieve
this. Using <scope>import</scope> to override hierarchically defined dependency
management would be a nice way of organising this in a way that supports the multi-tired architecture
my real use case would require.
> In short, it feels to me that a <dependencyManagement> definition with <scope>import</scope>
should be 'closer' to the current bundle's dependency resolution than its parents.
> Thanks for your consideration,
> Dan.
