Subject Re: POM Model version 4.1.0 in 3.4.0-SNAPSHOTs
Date Mon, 29 Aug 2016 22:33:57 GMT
I fail to see how any such flattening can do away with interpolation. Your
typical nonlib project has say 5-100 deps, each of which would have a flat
tree that needs to be compared with and resolved against the others. I can
see it speeding things up due to having all of the information for just the
declared number after that many downloads, but you can't have simple code
that just gets stuff. Not going to work.

Or am I blind?
