I recommend you read the books on Maven
What you are doing is going against the way Maven works, and you will lose.
Its best to accept the conventions Maven proposes and make your life happy.

What you want to do is to pull out your shared folder into separate
projects, one for each different functionality.
You then get maven to build those into jars which are installed into a
Maven Repository Manager so that others can obtain them.
Now your projects can explicitly specify just the stuff they actually depend on.
