Does it mean that, depMgmt is only concerned about 'version' resolve?
As I can use 'scope' also in depMgmt, that's inspire me to try to use

By the way, I fine with either case, because optional dep is only minor case.

Also, if optional is not supposed to be put under depMgmt, should it be removed
from the POM reference doc and the XSD also (I have check out those
doc initially,
as optional is listed as valid child element under depMgt/deps/dep.)


Anyway, thanks very much for your clarification!
