----------------------------------------

             Summary: Make it possible to specify pluginRepository through CLI so that remote
plugin consumers don't have to worry editing settings.xml file
                 Key: MNG-5236
                 URL: https://jira.codehaus.org/browse/MNG-5236
             Project: Maven 2 & 3
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Plugins and Lifecycle
            Reporter: Chethiya Abeysinghe


I wrote a maven plugin and expect it to be used by wide range of developers. At the moment
my suggestion for them is to edit the user level settings.xml file to include <pluginRepository>
to include the nexus remote repo of my plugin. Also that settings XML file include <repository>
tag pointing to same repo too. 

It would be handy if it's possible to specify the plugin repository in the command line, e.g.
mvn groupId:plugin-artifactId:goal -Dmaven.pluginRepositoryUrl=[url to the remote repo]

That way I can ask plugin users to just copy-paste the command in the prompt without asking
them to edit settings.xml. Of couse they also have the option of editing settings.xml file
that is a one-time operation.

Thanks
