Subject [jira] Created: (MSITE-484) Support adding and overriding report plugins in new maven-site-plugin 3.x reportPlugins configuration format

Support adding and overriding report plugins in new maven-site-plugin 3.x reportPlugins configuration

                 Key: MSITE-484
             Project: Maven 2.x Site Plugin
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: inheritance
    Affects Versions: 3.0-alpha-1
         Environment: 3.0-beta-1-SNAPSHOT
            Reporter: Michael Pilquist

When using the new configuration format for reportPlugins, it appears that there's no way
- Add a report plugin to a submodule
- Override the configuration of a report plugin in a submodule

Using the old <reporting> section, both of these use cases were supported.  For large,
multi-module builds, it is problematic having to respecify all reporting plugins in any submodule
pom that needs to either add an additional reporting plugin or change the configuration of
a reporting plugin.

Attached is a sample project that has a parent POM configured with project-info-reports and
javadoc plugin and a submodule configured with jxr plugin and javadoc plugin.  The relevant
output is here:

Looking at the maven-site-plugin code, it appears the the reportPlugins parameter is just
a regular array parameter.  AFAIK, there's no way to merge list configuration items.  Other
plugins have worked around this by defining additional mojo parameters (e.g., maven-eclipse-plugin
and buildCommands / additionalBuildCommands --
 This isn't the most flexible option though as it only solves 1 level inheritance.
