    Description

      If a plugin fails for any reason, a general message is logged with a reference to a wiki page, which never contains the real reason why the plugin failed.
      For new users this is very confusing. Even when we teach them to read, and they finally see a link, it's quite frustrating for them that they still don't know what happened.
      MojoExecutionException and MojoFailureException should never refer to a wikipage anymore.
      Plugin writers should get more control over the message written to the console.
