Maven Import with dependencies: During the BoF at EclipseCon Europe 2015 we got some really good feedback. And one feature request was to import from Maven repositories, including dependencies. So starting with Package Drone 0.12.0 it is possible to resolve Maven dependencies before proceeding with the import. Dependencies already in the channel will be detected and shown in the result list in which the user can also customize the import request before performing the import.
