      Description

      'm trying to set up reporting plugin inheritance and not having any luck. I'm using Maven 2.0.9 on Java 1.6.0_07. Here is my problem:
      parent/pom.xml has

        <reporting>
          <plugins>
            <plugin>
              <artifactId>maven-javadoc-plugin</artifactId>
              <configuration>
                <silent>true</silent>
                <links>
                  <link>parentLink</link>
                </links>
              </configuration>
            </plugin>
          </plugins>
        </reporting>

      child/pom.xml has

        <reporting>
          <plugins>
            <plugin>
              <artifactId>maven-javadoc-plugin</artifactId>
              <configuration>
                <links combine.children="append">
                  <link>childLink</link>
                </links>
              </configuration>
            </plugin>
          </plugins>
        </reporting>

      After installing the parent, mvn help:effective-pom for the child yeilds:

       <reporting>
          <outputDirectory>target/site</outputDirectory>
          <plugins>
            <plugin>
              <artifactId>maven-javadoc-plugin</artifactId>
              <configuration>
                <links>
                  <link>childLink</link>
                </links>
              </configuration>
            </plugin>
          </plugins>
        </reporting>

      I expected it to look like:

       <reporting>
          <outputDirectory>target/site</outputDirectory>
          <plugins>
            <plugin>
              <artifactId>maven-javadoc-plugin</artifactId>
              <configuration>
                <silent>true</silent>
                <links>
                  <link>parentLink</link>
                  <link>childLink</link>
                </links>
              </configuration>
            </plugin>
          </plugins>
        </reporting>
      

      I'd be happy to make a test case for this if someone would point me in the right direction.
