Allow to exclude some matcher/mailet from documentation



      Apache James uses the `mailetdocs-maven-plugin` in order to build the mailet/matcher documentation.

      This plugin scans the sources, finds mailet and matcher, then generates the documentation entry from its javadoc.

      Nowadays all mailet and matchers are included.

      This is a problem because we have some test specifics mailets/matcher that are not usable as part of James but still are reported as part of the documentation.

      (Examples includes james-project/server/container/guice/custom-mailets/src/main/java/org/apache/james/transport/mailets/CustomMailet.java and the like, used to generate a separate library containing custom mailets/matchers in order to test custom mailets/matchers instanciation)

      The goal of this ticket is to add a `@ExcludeFromDocumentation` annotation as part of the mailet-api. The plugin would skip such annotated mailets/matcher.

      In order to to this:

      • Create a new `@ExcludeFromDocumentation` in the mailet API
      • Annotate with it classes in `james-project/server/container/guice/custom-mailets`
      • Modify james-project/mailet/mailetdocs-maven-plugin/src/main/java/org/apache/james/mailet/DefaultDescriptorsExtractor.java in order to skip classes annotated as excluded.
      • Add a test in james-project/mailet/mailetdocs-maven-plugin/src/test/java/org/apache/james/mailet/DefaultDescriptorsExtractorTest.java showing excluded mailets are not listed (add an excluded mailet in that package, then assert in a new test that it is not reported).
