> Turn warnings into errors instead of failOnWarning
> --------------------------------------------------
>                 Key: MDEP-602
>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MDEP-602
>             Project: Maven Dependency Plugin
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: analyze
>    Affects Versions: 3.0.2
>            Reporter: Richard Eckart de Castilho
>            Priority: Minor
> Currently, the dependency:analyze goal supports a parameter called failOnWarning which - when enabled - causes warnings to fail the build.
> This is confusing, especially for new developers on a team who are often unable to locate the dependency problems causing the build to fail in the logs because they only look for "error" level messages.
> To avoid such problems, I would suggest deprecating the failOnWarning parameter, and instead introduce a new parameter such as treatDependencyProblemsAs which could take as a default level "warning" and which users could alternatively set to "error".
> I am setting this as a "major improvement" because in my experience, it causes significant confusion over and over again.
