    Description

      suppose i have a multi-module project that uses spring, and so have this in dependency-managements in a parent pom:

      <dependency>
      	<groupId>org.springframework</groupId>
      	<artifactId>spring-framework-bom</artifactId>
      	<version>${org.springframework.version}</version>
      	<type>pom</type>
      	<scope>import</scope>	
      </dependency>
      

      spring artifacts (or at least a lot of them) have a dependency on commons-logging. right now, if i want to exclude commons-logging i have to add an exclusion to every spring dependency in every module of my project, which is actually more XML overall than giving up on using the bom dependency altogether and listing all spring dependencies with excludes once in the parent dependency management.

      I'd like to be able to do this:

      <dependency>
      	<groupId>org.springframework</groupId>
      	<artifactId>spring-framework-bom</artifactId>
      	<version>${org.springframework.version}</version>
      	<type>pom</type>
      	<scope>import</scope>
      	<exclusions>
      		<exclusion>
      			<artifactId>commons-logging</artifactId>
      			<groupId>commons-logging</groupId>
      		</exclusion>
      	</exclusions>
      </dependency>
