Subject [jira] [Created] (MNG-5978) test libraries should declare expected scope in their pom

---------------------------------

             Summary: test libraries should declare expected scope in their pom
                 Key: MNG-5978
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-5978
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Wish
          Components: Dependencies
            Reporter: Nadav Wexler


when using test libraries and forgetting to include the expected <scope>test</scope>
this could have your jars and wars inflated and could also create some problems in your environment.

I suggest to include the expected scope in your pom, and then when depending on that library,
checking against the actual pom.
if those do not match then a warning should be triggered.

also this should be recursive - the check should not emit a warning if the using library is
also a test library.

I'd love to hear your comments on this Wish!
