    Description

      As the lifecycle of projects are executed, these type of informational messages are emitted:
      [INFO] — maven-clean-plugin:2.3:clean (default-clean) @ project-name ---

      Based on my own team, I think there are three things to note:

      • The plugin:version::goal can easily be confused with the the dependency artifactId:version:classifier format. Seriously.
      • I don't think the @ symbol is natural to describe the project.
      • The execution name probably could be suppressed unless DEBUG was on.

      How about?
      [INFO] — maven-clean-plugin:2.3 executing goal "clean" for project Project Name ---
