      Description

      The help plugin makes a lot of references to "mojos" which I think is confusing to people who don't do Maven development. We should be consistent in referring to these things as "goals" rather than "mojos" in the help documentation, which we expect to be primarily used by newbies.

        Nobody's going to find that FAQ! We should just call it a "goal" to match the behavior of help:help.

        Fixed revision 690098. Added backwards compatibility for "mojo". Also added support for help:help parameter "-Ddetail" instead of "-Dfull".
