Add the ability to set self-referencing properties in the *.properties files of maven. This could be useful e.g. for javadoc plugin for a (hypothetical) javadoc.offlineUrl property, which points to where the offline javadocs are located:
project.properties could contain such locations which are part of the project, e.g.
$HOME/build.properties then should be able to extend the property by adding further offline URLs, e.g.
Of course, a general "self-referencing properties" could be useful for several other cases.
As far as I was able to test this feature, a self-referencing properties
used like above causes a Exception.
I have no idea which code needs to be changed, so sorry, there's no patch attached.
