      Description

      The parent-pom has the ability to preconfigure a lot for all the projects referring to it. However, the parent be used for all kinds of project types (jar, war,ear, etc). There are plugins which you would like to configure at parent level, but not for every type. It would be great if you could specify for which packaging the plugin execution should be activated.
      On the other hand, it would also be nice if the plugin goals could specify its default packaging types. I explicitly say default, I know a discussion with the checkstyle team regarding the supported languages. It is possible to verify XML with the checkstyle engine, though their focus is very strong on Java only.
