      Description

      When the m2 plugin reads the POM files and "Download sources" is set in the Eclipse preferences, it tries to download the source every time.

      Instead, it should cache the "source not available" status somewhere (just like Maven itself does) and not print thousands of error messages (Unable to download the artifact from any repository).

      This also delays the build considerably (opening network connections) and real errors are drowned.
