>                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MNG-6189
>             Project: Maven
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: Inheritance and Interpolation, Sites & Reporting
>    Affects Versions: 3.5.0-alpha-1
>            Reporter: Hervé Boutemy
>            Assignee: Hervé Boutemy
>             Fix For: 3.5.0-alpha-2
> with MNG-4162, a bunch of reporting logic was removed from Maven core.
> This was globally successful, but not on one topic: it was expected to remove 
> pom's {{reporting}} section and replace it with a normal {{reportPlugins}} 
> parameter in maven-site-plugin configuration.
> We later discovered that with this normal parameter, we missed one crucial 
> feature: report plugins inheritance, which would require a new mechanism 
> MSITE-484
> Then we reverted our instructions in maven-site-plugin documentation 
> MSITE-647: the new {{reportPlugins}} parameter is now just an implementation 
> detail, but should not be used by end-users, {{reporting}} section remains 
> the way to configure report plugins MSITE-684
> Now adding a warning in Maven core when it detects a {{reportPlugins}} 
> parameter in a maven-site-plugin configuration is easy to do, will help users 
> come back to normal {{reporting}} configuration, and will permit future 
> enhancements (we need to finally completely clean-up the situation we created 
> with this story...)
