      Description

      Maven recognizes an attribute 'combine.self' on the 'configuration' element within plugin declarations within a POM ('configuration' elements within and outside 'execution' elements). However, an XML validator flags use of this attribute as an error. Which is correct, because published XSD http://maven.apache.org/xsd/maven-4.0.0.xsd does not declare 'combine.self' as an attribute of 'configuration'.

      Current declaration of the configuration element:

            <xs:element name="configuration" minOccurs="0">
              <xs:annotation>
                <xs:documentation source="version">4.0.0</xs:documentation>
                <xs:documentation source="description">The configuration of the reporting plugin.</xs:documentation>
              </xs:annotation>
              <xs:complexType>
                <xs:sequence>
                  <xs:any minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" processContents="skip"/>
                </xs:sequence>
              </xs:complexType>
            </xs:element>

      Simple fix:

            <xs:element name="configuration" minOccurs="0">
              <xs:annotation>
                <xs:documentation source="version">0.0.0+</xs:documentation>
              </xs:annotation>
              <xs:complexType>
                <xs:sequence>
                  <xs:any minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded" processContents="skip"/>
                </xs:sequence>
                <xs:attribute name="combine.self" type="xs:string" use="optional"/>
              </xs:complexType>
            </xs:element>
