Subject Re: sanctioning commons-logging version "99.0-does-not-exist"
Date Thu, 14 May 2009 10:06:54 GMT
I myself use slf4j and this "99" hack
Using en empty "commons-logging-0.0-null.jar"  would NOT break the LATEST
keyword resolution and could be forced from project <dependencyManagement>
(with provided scope)

This would be a nice solution to globaly exclude xommons-logging without
breaking existing builds
