      Description

      After performing a migration to the new m2e, many users are left in a bad state with their maven projects. There are many errors on pom files such as "Plugin execution lifecycle not covered...".

      There are some things that we can do to ameliorate this problem.

      We can first make it more clear what the options for the user is. First, we should suggest opening the m2e discovery catalog, and then if there are still more errors, we should provide a global way of {{<ignore/>}}ing the plugin executions.

      This functionality could be linked into one or more of the following locations:

      1. Enhancing the migration assistant
      2. A quickfix
      3. A menu item in either the Configure, Maven, or Spring Tools menus.

      Before any work gets done on this area, we need to be sure exactly what we want to implement and how the functionality should be invoked.
