             Summary: Add support for "includes" in dependencyManagement
                 Key: MNG-6107
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: New Feature
          Components: POM
            Reporter: Christofer Dutz

There are quite a number of artifacts that reference no-deps artifacts which 
pull in undesired content. I usually exclude these in dependencyManagment 
sections, but manually add artifacts that provide the excluded nodeps content. 
The problem is, that if someone in the company uses the library for which I 
have excluded the no-deps artifacts will probably not know about this and not 
manually add the missing artifacts. Therefore it would be great if the 
dependencyManagment section would allow not only "excludes" but "includes" that 
would allow to auto-include dependencies if a given artifact is used.
