[regression] plugin updates are requested on every build regardless of policies

    Details

      Description

      I'm not sure if this is an intentional change that I've missed or not, but running something like:

      mvn archetype:generate
      

      will retrieve the metadata from the repository on every build:

      Downloading: http://repo1.maven.org/maven2/org/apache/maven/plugins/maven-metadata.xml
      9 KB downloaded at 17.1 KB/sec
      

      This is in contrast to Maven 2.2.1 which always continues to use the first version encountered until you use -U:

        <pluginRepositories>
          <pluginRepository>
            <releases>
              <updatePolicy>never</updatePolicy>
            </releases>
      

      While that remains in the super POM of Maven 3, it seems that the metadata is retrieved regardless.
