Subject Re: list all unique dependencies of multi-module project
Date Fri, 14 Mar 2014 17:24:24 GMT
ok..., based on my previous email, trying re-asking here the same question
from a different angle:

The project-info-reports:dependency-management goal is used to generate the
Project DependencyManagement report.

In in a multi-module project, is it currently already possible to generate
the same report (maybe off of the main pom project container of your entire
source tree), which aggregates all the reports of all submodules (unique
GAV+scope entries)?
