Not sure what you mean about transitive dependencies here.

AIUI, what the 99.0-does-not-exist is trying to do is to provide a
fake resolution for people who want to use jcl-over-slf4j instead of

The referenced blog had a posting suggesting using
<scope>provided</scope> but apparently that still adds commons logging
as a dependency.

I was suggesting trying "system" scope instead.
If people want to try that for their systems, well why not?

But I agree with others that version 99 is a really bad idea.

Perhaps "0.0-does-not-exist" might be a more acceptable solution, or
maybe "0.0-null-version" as it does need to exist.
