from my understanding, the features-generate-descriptor goal of the
karaf-maven-plugin (version 3.0.0-SNAPSHOT) pulls in all transitive
dependencies into the created feature.xml file.
I would like it to only include the bundles that I explicitly include in my
dependencies. That is, I would like the plugin to ignore transitive
dependencies. Now, is there a configuration parameter to achieve this? After
reading the plugin documentation (mvn help:describe) I cannot seem to find
such an option.
Currently I'm using a bunch of <excludes> to ignore transitive dependencies
but it's rather tedious and clutters the pom file.
It's clear that it's better to add an includeTransitiveDependency (as the assembly plugin) to manage the transitive dependencies.
