Currently the quickstarts for Narayana project does not solve dependency management in some global way.
Each directory contains one quickstart and it manages dependencies on its own what leads to situation that during compilation quickstarts as a whole project common libraries are downloaded several times (e.g. arquillian).
There is idea of using JDF quickstart style of managing dependencies. They use BOMs where all dependencies are defined. Versions are defined in parent pom.xml.
As inspiration could be used BOM from JDF:
It could be used this bom directly or just import it or do it in other way.
