      Description

      I would like to be able to put exludes at the top level of dependencies so that it can easily be excluded from all transitive dependencies, instead of just excluding it from a single dependency at a time. For example assume that project1 and project2 both have transitive dependencies on different versions of project-trans:

      <dependencies>
        <exclusions>
          <exclusion>
            <groupId>com.stuff</groupId>
            <artifactId>project-trans</artifactId>
          </exclusion>
        </exclusions>
        <dependency>
          <groupId>com.stuff</groupId>
          <artifactId>project1</artifactId>
          <version>1.0</version>
        <dependency>
        <dependency>
          <groupId>com.stuff</groupId>
          <artifactId>project2</artifactId>
          <version>1.0</version>
        <dependency>
      </dependencies>
      

      In this example, the "project-trans" dependency would be exluded from both project1 and project2. It can be difficult to find all the locations of a transitively included dependency for a large project that has a large number of frequently changing dependencies.
