      Description

      A version defined for a plugin in the <reporting> section of the POM is ignored. For example, I would expect that the following definition in a POM forces the usage of version 2.0-beta-4 of the site-plugin:
      <project>
      ...
      <reporting>
      <plugins>
      <plugin>
      <groupId>org.apache.maven.plugins</groupId>
      <artifactId>maven-site-plugin</artifactId>
      <version>2.0-beta-4</version>
      </plugin>
      ...

      However, Maven always uses the newer version 2.0-beta-5:

      >mvn site -X
      + Error stacktraces are turned on.
      Maven version: 2.0.4
      ...

      It doesn´t matter, if the plugin already exists in the local repostitory or not.
