Make our dependency usage the same as maven dependency usage via car-maven-plugin
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: GERONIMO-4013
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GERONIMO-4013
             Project: Geronimo
          Issue Type: Improvement
      Security Level: public (Regular issues)
    Affects Versions: 2.2
            Reporter: David Jencks
            Assignee: David Jencks
             Fix For: 2.2


Right now the car-maven-plugin ignores maven transitive dependencies.  One reason for this
is that our build is not using our plugins as the "classloader source" of the maven dependencies
that are in the plugin poms.  If we restructured our build so that the pom dependency graph
matched the geronimo classloader graph then perhaps we could let the car-maven-plugin follow
transitive dependencies, thus making our view of dependencies pretty much the same as maven's.

This may show up many other problems, such as too many badly scoped dependencies in all sorts
of projects we use.

One first step is to try out the car-maven-plugin with a flag for following transitive dependencies.
 As long as it is false we ought to get pretty much the previous behavior.

A first use could be for the new gshell plugins so they don't have to restate all the transitive
dependencies.  This may show up scope problems as well.
