> We had an ambition to add prefixes surefire and failsafe in the old system properties
which do not have them. At the same time we should remove {{skipTests}} from {{maven-failsafe-plugin}}
because this have been associated with unit tests for long and thus {{maven-surefire-plugin}}.
On the other side the {{maven-failsafe-plugin}} has a better property to use {{skipITs}}.
Since the {{skip***}} system properties are so famous and have been used everywhere, we should
not add prefixes for those; otherwise we broke all the world. We can make it with other system
properties. We want to remove deprecated config parameters in the last milestone of {{3.0.0}}.
One more reason to do these unpopular changes is the fact that system properties without prefixes
interfere with other plugins.
