Subject Re: Apache Maven JDeps Plugin
Date Mon, 16 Feb 2015 18:28:05 GMT
Hi Alan,

if you are referring to the -R / -recursive option of the jdeps tool, then  
yes you can.
I think jdeps is first of all interesting for the classes of the current  
Java project, so I've set the default of this parameter to 'false'.  
However, if the majority thinks it is better to activate this by default,  
we will consider to change this value.
