Subject Re: rereport, exclude dependencies

Are you able to share your ant task, Nascif?  I managed to hack up a
very custom XSL file [1] that includes only the organization I'm
looking for, but it's a complete hack & it doesn't lend itself to
other things I'd like to implement too.

a large repo, and specially if you are using a resource-heavy resolver like HTTP, this will
kill your build performance before you can get to the XSL task.

of the download option in the ResolveOptions API. So when you run this query you will effectively
download *all* the artifaces in your repositiory (for their latest versions) - just to get
their metadata to figure out the dependency graph. A huge wast of time and disk space.
