Project.getDependencies() doesn't actually allow access to the dependencies, but rather is a way to add dependencies to the project. Would be less confusing to rename it, perhaps getDependencyHandler() or getDependencyAdder() .

Also, the current javadoc is confusing, as it says that it "Returns the dependencies of this project." which it doesn't actually do.

I have changed the javadoc. For 0.9 we plan to refactor the dependencies API. We want to get rid of the configurations and turn them into composite dependencies. Then you can do:


Which I guess will make this issue obsolete as dependencies then do what you expect it to do. I leave the issue open until the work is actually done.
