Yes, although I'll note that this was discussed here just yesterday.

We have a set of projects we want to run tests for.  We want the tests
to be as reproducible as possible, so we want to control what can
cause changes in test outcome, and so that we have a "working
configuration" that applications using the projects can use as a
starting point.  For this reason, we specify the versions of all
projects we test *and*  all projects those projects depend on.  We may
not test all of the dependencies for various reasons, but we still
want to fix the versions of the dependencies.
