Subject custom scopes eaten when dependency is transitive
Date Mon, 10 Oct 2011 15:34:12 GMT

I use flexmojos maven plugin to build flex projects with maven.

Flex projects have more dependency scopes than java projects, which control
various things like caching and runtime dependency loading. To do this,
various scopes are added (e.g: <scope>rsl</scope>).

This works fine when dependencies are directly declared, but it would appear
that the scopes are stripped from dependencies are down in an included pom

Is this a bug? If not, why is it stripping these scopes, and what is the
correct way of doing this for languages that require more flexibility than
Java? (The FM author clearly feels that maven is java-centric and doesn't
care about these usecases)..
