Subject [jira] Created: (MPH-29) help:describe should be way more helpful when no arguments are provided

help:describe should be way more helpful when no arguments are provided
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: MPH-29
                 URL: http://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MPH-29
             Project: Maven 2.x Help Plugin
          Issue Type: Improvement
            Reporter: Dan Fabulich


Right now if you "mvn help:describe" with no further arguments you get an error: "You must
either specify 'groupId' and 'artifactId', or a valid 'plugin' parameter."

The people who are using help:describe don't necessarily know how help:describe works yet;
if they did, they might be clever enough to use "mvn help:describe -Dplugin=help -Dmojo=describe"
to figure out how help:describe works.

This error message should be more like a paragraph long, and should include valid working
examples.  It could be copied from the apt doc for the help plugin.
