>             Project: Maven Checkstyle Plugin
>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.10

> The website describes the check goal as
> {panel}
> checkstyle:check performs a violation check against the last Checkstyle run to see if
there are any violations. It reads the Checkstyle output file, counts the number of violations
found and displays it on the console.{panel}
> This is incorrect. The check goal will, by default, run the actual checkstyle analysis
before printing the messages.
> The following text would be better on the home page:
> {panel}
> * checkstyle:checkstyle - a reporting task that performs Checkstyle analysis and generates
an HTML report on violations.
> * checkstyle:checkstyle-aggregate - a reporting task that performs Checkstyle analysis
and generates an aggregate HTML report on violations in a multi-module reactor build.
> * checkstyle:check - performs Checkstyle analysis and outputs violations to the console,
potentially failing the build. It can also be configured to re-use an earlier analysis.
> {panel}
> The description on the check-mojo page should also be fixed similarly:
> An example or FAQ should be added to emphasise the difference between the checkstyle
and check goals.
