Description terje7601 2016-11-04 13:17:45 UTC
When right-clicking the "Dependencies" node of a Maven project, there's a boolean setting "Show Managed State for dependencies". From this description, it's a mystery to me what this option does, and googling it doesn't help either. Eventually I found out by looking at the source code that it adds a "badge" for dependencies which are declared in the dependencyManagement section.

I'd propose to rename the setting to "Mark managed dependencies". Using "Mark" clearly indicates that this is merely turning on/off a visual indicator. And googling "managed dependencies maven" will quickly get you to understand what this does.
