Subject alias for dependencies
Date Wed, 11 Sep 2013 13:25:23 GMT
Hi guys,

i don't think we can but it would be great to be able to alias
dependencies. For instance:

in a dependencyManagement i could define:


then later in children poms use:

<dependency> <!--  an attribute would be better here -->

It would allow:
1) to get smaller dependencies (less verbosity)
2) (this one is much more important) dynamic dependencies
