      Description

      Users continuously report issues regarding the order of plugin executions: repeating that this order is not expected to be guaranteed inside a phase is not convincing for them.

      The algorithm used to calculate the order of executions performed by Maven needs to be documented:

      • declaration order in the POM
      • inheritance merging from parent POM,
      • merging of profiles and other plugin containers,
      • the order of executions of multiple executions in the same lifecycle phase,
        etc.
