dashboard build problem with Sakai trunk code after purepom changes

      Due to some recent Sakai trunk change related to purepoms, the Dashboard trunk can no longer build with Sakai 2.10 trunk.

      Here is the explanation from Matthew Jones:

      "Quick summary:

      • If you have an indie, switch parent from purepoms to master. If you have some apis dependencies inherited through compile scope, these might be overridden by dependencyManagement in master so you may need to define more dependencies.

      2) Purepoms were removed from 2.9 and trunk after 2.9.0-b03 a few months ago. If your contrib tool still uses a purepoms for 2.9 or 2.10 snapshot it will no longer be able to find these artifacts. (https://jira.sakaiproject.org/browse/SAK-21564) Old artifacts for 2.9-SNAPSHOT and 2.10-SNAPSHOT were in source.sakaiproject.org/maven2-snapshots. These artifacts were up to 5 months old. We had changed to deploying all artifacts releases and snapshots to maven central/sonatype, so if your tool had this repository defined you need to update it.

      Ideally your tool can use a fixed release version of 2.9 (like 2.9.0-b05). That would be ideally what your parent looks like:
      You can use the version 2.9-SNAPSHOT which is in the repository, but 2.10-SNAPSHOT currently would require your users to download and build sakai-trunk-all to use. (As mentioned in Step #1)

      It was also noticed that some projects had dependencies defined in their "api's" with no scope defined (so it got compile) and when the api was a dependency in something else (like the impl or the tool) those other dependencies would be pulled in as transisitive dependencies. However, since all api's are now defined in the master dependencyManagement as "provided", your tools dependencies may have to have these api's explicitly defined.


      Say you're the dashboard project and you used to inherit from purepoms. Switching to master alone will cause some dependencies to not be found. This is because in the dashboard-api there is:

      After switching to master, this scope becomes "provided" instead of "compile" as it isn't defined here, and it won't work when you include it in impl. So you'd need to define these as provided in impl.
