Thank you, it's much clearer now. The dependencies of commons logging 
1.1 were not properly scoped, it has been fixed with the 1.1.1 release. 
So in this case, adding a first level dependency on commons logging 
1.1.1 in my module ensures that logkit and log4j are not retrieved.

There is something curious though, I looked at the pom for commons 
configuration 1.5, and the dependency on commons-logging is declared 
with an exclusion on logkit and avalon :

But the exclusion disappeared in the pom published in the Maven repository :

I wonder what may have caused this.
