Issue was raised on the Gradle forum in this post.

Executing gradle uploadArchives for the given the following build script does not produce the correct metadata:

apply plugin: 'java'

repositories {

dependencies {
    compile ("org.drools:drools-core:6.3.0.Final"){
        exclude group : 'org.mvel'
    compile ("org.springframework:spring-core:4.2.5.RELEASE"){
        exclude group : 'commons-logging'

uploadArchives {
    repositories {
        ivy {
            url "file://${buildDir}/repo"

The generated metadata with Gradle 2.5 looks as such:

    <dependency org="org.drools" name="drools-core" rev="6.3.0.Final" conf="compile-&gt;default"/>
    <dependency org="org.springframework" name="spring-core" rev="4.2.5.RELEASE" conf="compile-&gt;default"/>

With previous versions of Gradle the generated metadata included the exclude statements:

    <dependency org="org.drools" name="drools-core" rev="6.3.0.Final" conf="compile-&gt;default">
      <exclude org="org.mvel" module="*" name="*" type="*" ext="*" conf="compile" matcher="exact"/>
    <dependency org="org.springframework" name="spring-core" rev="4.2.5.RELEASE" conf="compile-&gt;default">
      <exclude org="commons-logging" module="*" name="*" type="*" ext="*" conf="compile" matcher="exact"/>

When can we expect this to be released in an official version of Gradle?
