             Summary: Add ability to easily retrieve core extensions from alternative pluginRepository
                 Key: MNG-6327
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6327
             Project: Maven
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Bootstrap & Build
            Reporter: Matt Biggs


If you define an extension in *.mvn/extensions.xml* it is automatically retrieved and installed
when you first build but ONLY if it is present in maven central. 

I understand it's obviously a little 'chicken and egg' scenario but it would be really useful
for making a seamless out of the box experience if it could either a) read the pom and use
the pluginRepositories from there, or b) if you could perhaps specify the repository inside
the extensions.xml file?

The only work around I can currently find is to ask the user to add an active profile to their
settings.xml which obviously isn't as nice.
