      Description

      I have an aggregate project. In pluginManagement, I spec out javadoc:jar. In the leaf projects, I turn it on with an ordinary <plugin/> for the plugin.

      If I leave detectOfflineLinks with its default value of true, the javadoc plugin uses the invoker plugin to relaunch itself, recursively, complaining that it hasn't been run on one or another of the projects. Note that, when this happens, it is 'swimming upstream' – it is processing project A, it invokes itself on project B, where B depends on A, not the other way around.

      If I run maven just in the leaf directories all is well. The trouble only happens when running maven from the aggregating parent.

      Just to clarify, in case I don't get a test case together too soon ...

      external/corporate parent:

      javadoc only mentioned in the <reporting> section.

      aggregating parent:

      javadoc only mentioned in pluginManagement, setting up execution of javadoc:jar.

      leaf:

      A very plain 'plugin' element just to turn on the configuration from plugin management.

      mvn run from leaf: all is well.

      mvn run from aggregating parent: lots of extra 'invoker' invocations of javadoc on projects that have dependencies on the current project.

          I just tested and cannot reproduce any problem
          In fact, I can't reproduce any problem now, but I'm sure a few months ago I had the same problems as you (but I changed computer in the meaning time: perhaps this could have an unexpected impact)
          Can you confrirm you're still having problems with mahout?
          If yes, please attach "mvn -X ..." output: perhaps I'll se something
          And if you can update javadoc plugin to 1.8-SNAPSHOT and attach output, it would be great too: I added some traces to help investigate
