      Description

      It's tedious and unnecessary to type the entire groupId and artifactId since plugin:goal also works
      when specified on the commandline.

      Add a new parameter -Dgoal=plugin:goal or -Dprefix=plugin and let m2 resolve the plugin
      in the normal fashion;

      mvn help:describe -Dprefix=help -> show Mojo's for maven-help-plugin

          Well, apparently the current version of the help plugin allows for that, even if the help plugin site does not seem up to date.
          The following works:

          mvn help:describe -Dplugin=site -Dfull=true

          (althought the output is a bit too verbose i my opinon)
